Do you think all of Canada should adopt this and make clocking less complicated?
At the wee hours on the second Sunday of March, the clocks in most parts of Canada are set forward by an hour for Daylight Saving Time (DST). The motive, initially, was to make daylight hours longer which, however, seems to have become more cumbersome than convenient.
In the United States, a bill “Sunshine Protection Act of 2021” was presented earlier this month to end the time change and make DST permanent across the United States relieving Americans of the need to change their clocks twice a year when it is passed through the Senate.
In Canada, the province of Ontario, in November 2020 passed the Time Amendment Act, which will stop changing the clocks twice a year — if Quebec and New York State follow.
However, this is not new to Canada. The territory of Yukon, large parts of Saskatchewan and some areas in the province of Quebec and British Columbia, however, do not observe this routine. They stay on standard time throughout the year. Do you think all of Canada should adopt this and make clocking less complicated?
As new immigrants some of us are confused and still getting used to this custom.
What are your thoughts on this bi-annual tradition?
