UPDATE – Province Holding On-Line Survey- Keep Or Dump Daylight Saving Time – YOU SAY YES, DUMP IT!!!

Victoria – JULY 3 UPDATE – Record numbers of British Columbians are sharing their views on whether the province should continue observing daylight saving time.

Only a week into it and more than 158,000 responses have pretty much said the same thing.

YES, SCRAP IT!

“It’s clear there is no shortage of views on how we should observe time in British Columbia,” said Premier John Horgan. “I’m very pleased so many people have already taken part in this engagement to help determine the best way forward for B.C., and I encourage everyone to take the survey and let us know what they think.”

The response to the daylight saving time survey has exceeded that of several recent initiatives. For comparison, 19,291 surveys were completed in the seven days following the launch of the engagement on cannabis regulations.

The survey will be available until 4 p.m. on July 19. The survey website includes background information on the history of time observance in British Columbia and the impact of various options, such as changes to the timings of sunrise and sunset at different times of year. The survey takes approximately five minutes to complete.

    Keep daylight savings. I would prefer more daylight in the evening.

  4. Keep daylight savings. More daylight in eves. makes safer conditions for teens and others.

  5. I think BC should do nothing on it’s own. I think “0” at grenich should be moved east or west one time zone to push the whole world to daylight saving time. It is important that ALL countrys are on the same time, espeshally for shiping, air and train travel
