On September 10, 2014 the Capital Regional District (CRD) Board passed the motion that the introduction, first reading and second reading of Bylaw No. 3855 “Noise Suppression Bylaw (Salt Spring Island) No. 1, 2006, Amendment Bylaw No. 1, 2014” be rescinded.

The purpose of the proposed bylaw amendment to Bylaw No. 3384, which provides regulations and penalties to assist with the abatement and control of disturbing noise in the Salt Spring Island Electoral Area, was to:
