This is your official bi-annual reminder to reset your clocks!
Daylight Saving Time (DST) will come to an end in BC on Sunday, November 7th at 2 a.m., reverting the time back by one hour to 1 a.m.
While the time on your electronic devices will probably reset automatically, those manual watches and clocks will need to be turned back by hand.
In 2019, a provincial survey asked British Columbians if the province should continue to conduct the daylight saving time practice every year.
In total, a whopping 223,273 residents responded to the survey, with 93% of people responding speaking in favour of making a permanent switch to DST.
Despite this overwhelming response, nothing has gone forward (no pun intended).
This is also a good time to check your smoke detectors to make sure they are in good working order.
By aligning your smoke detector checks with DST you have set dates, twice a year, to check on these incredibly important life saving tools.
