A bill has been introduced to keep the clocks where they are now. Should we keep 'Daylight savings'?
There is so little "standard time" left that it's pointless. No reason to not have one time all year round, and daylight savings time gives more daytime after work hours.
It is nice rising with the sun during the shorter days. Rising an hour later during deep, dark December would be too late for us.
We generally eat dinner around 5:30, and crepuscular dining is something we both enjoy during those months.
All I know is whenever I've lived outside this province I've been confused as heck as what I'm supposed to to with the clocks twice a year.
Changing the clocks makes no sense, and is very disruptive twice per year. Here in Mass., a similar initiative is under study by the legislature. In our case, the incentive to stay on DST is that we are so far east in the time zone that we really belong in the Atlantic Time Zone. So, permanent DST is equivalent to standard time in the Atlantic zone. Unfortunately, MA won't go it alone, so nothing will happen on the state level unless and until the majority of the adjacent states agree as well -- and maybe the whole I-95 corridor from Boston at least as far as Washington. Otherwise, it might be too disruptive.
Just scrap the whole thing and stick with Everywhere Normal Time. That's my humble opinion. (Was that one of the options on the poll? I wasn't 100% sure.) Enough of this nonsense of leaping forward and backward, up and down—Saskatchewan has it right, @S'toon!
Edit: I should check out the Off Topic section more often, this is a good discussion!
