No more resetting the clock twice a year – hopefully!
According to the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) Resolutions Book, delegates have approved a proposal to discontinue the bi-annual time change that comes with Daylight Saving Time.
A single, permanent time zone may be implemented across the province after the resolution argued that “daylight saving time no longer serves a vital function in today’s connected economy”.
The delegates also contend that the costs of implementing Daylight Saving Time overshadow the actual “savings” achieved through its execution.
The UBCM will now petition the provincial government to abandon the practice of making people change the time twice a year, and instead adopt a single time zone across the province.
