The Ministry of Environment has ended the burning restrictions imposed Friday for the Comox Valley.

As of Monday afternoon, open burning may now be conducted without a permit or approval from the Ministry of Environment provided that the activity complies with the Open Burning Smoke Control Regulation, Environmental Management Act, and with any restrictions imposed by other agencies (e.g. municipal burning bylaws).

An air quality advisory issued Friday when thick fog trapped fine particulates in the Comox Valley air was removed during the weekend.
