Abolish the Time Change?

Postby stuffradio » Sat Sep 30, 2017 9:52 pm

Premier Horgan said this week that if we want to stay one time all year long, we need to email him and let him know. Make sure you email premier@gov.bc.ca and tell him you want to stay on DST all year long.

Does he actually have the time to read thousands of emails? :lol:

Not sure if I'll get around to emailing him, but I agree with staying on DST year round.

LOL. :lol:

It's how our society is structured. The typical workday is 9-5, but if you wake up at 8 am in the summertime, you've already lost 3 hours of daylight. Most people prefer to sleep in, so they want more light in the evenings when they are more likely to be active.

Another option to daylight savings would be to start work & school one hour earlier. Of course, that would rely on people also having the sense to go to bed an hour earlier.
