    It's time to end this tyranny.

    We should all strive to make today the LAST time we change our clocks forward or back. PLEASE!

    I am in complete agreement with you. It is an archaic practice that serves no purpose. It needs to stay right where it is right now.

    Love that we don't change in SK.

    (Btw, just posted a comment in the other thread that it's Daylight Saving Time.)

    So much for staying on par with US states also doing DST but I concur-let's stop the clock shifting. Maybe it'll be better for stores to shift hours of opening and closing to account for the midday heat soon to come along so customers don't melt on the asphalt.
    Now if our Premiers would just get the issue resolved the next time they meet together before getting mired in funding issues...

    Still adjusting to the clock change one week later. Might need to catch up on a long sleep this weekend. Making like a cat and curling up under some throws in a warm nook somewhere...

    The European Union has voted to let its member nations decide if they want to be on wintertime (standard time) or summertime (daylight savings time) once 2021 comes around. The EU does not want to be changing clocks anymore after that year.

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-e...-idUSKCN1R71FS

    However, the UK will stick to seasonal clock changes.

    This is news (I knew about Arizona):
    The seasonal time shift has also been the subject of debate in the United States, where legislators have tried unsuccessfully to abolish it. For now, Hawaii and most of Arizona do not follow the practice.

    About week two after the spring clock change, my mind and body no longer seem affected. But the first week was definitely a bummer for me.

    I'd be OK with not changing it if we could keep daylight savings time. I hate how early it gets dark in the winter.

    We have less than 3 years left until Ontarians can elect a new government. Plenty of time to seek a referendum question on the matter (as Time is a Provincial concern). If the EU countries have to decide on Standard (winter) or Daylight (summer) time by next year, so should North American provinces and states.

    Can we make it to November on Daylight Savings Time? I want the clock change next month to Standard Time. Most of us will be thinking like that due to the shorter daylight hours.
