Daylight Wasting Time

I should start this entry by stating that I am biased. Saskatchewan is the only province where its residents don’t have to pull out the manual for every appliance with a clock twice a year. From my understanding many people in Saskatchewan are very opposed to the idea of changing time. It would be like suggesting American’s step into the 21st century and ditch the imperial system. It’s just never going to happen.

The one thing the people in Saskatchewan have to adapt to is time changes between provinces. Alberta is the same time as Saskatchewan for half the year and Manitoba is the same for the rest of the year.

Now that I’m in British Columbia, I have to adapt to the time shifting. I don’t really understand how it works. Last week it was getting dark at 5 PM and poof now it gets dark at 4 PM. Apparently it is light an hour earlier in the morning, but I have yet to confirm this. Even if this is the case, I would rather have a little more daylight time in the day.

    I can confirm the morning thing, I can see where I am going again!

    I grew up in Ontario and ever since I was a teenager, looked forward to the “Fall Back” part of daylight savings time. Mainly because it allowed for an extra hour [of serving] at the bars. “Spring Forward” seems like we always loose an hour, and I don’t much like loosing anything.
