Daylight saving time. Rant away.

Re: Daylight saving time whining about to begin again

The only time daylight savings time change bothers me is when I have to work through it.

I mean, "go to work and see which of my clients actually remembered and are not claiming I'm late/early."

Most of them get it, but with so many with dementia living in the community (you people have no idea) it is the only difficult part of the work weekend.

I also end up changing a lot of clocks, which is fine by me.

Horgan says the time change is okay: he's a leftist idiot.

A few years ago Christie said the time change was okay: seems reasonable.

I text, phone, message a few to make sure the clocks are changed. Even the smartest people screw up and that doesn't impress me much.

You seem to be forgetting that humour is frowned on here. :130:

Yes! Finally some movement on this.

B.C. Premier John Horgan has sent a letter to governors in the states of Washington, Oregon and California asking to be kept in the loop on no longer changing the clocks twice a year. The jurisdictions are looking at ways to stay on either Daylight Saving Time or Pacific Standard Time year-round.


B.C. Liberal MLA Linda Larson has introduced a private member’s bill that would establish a new time zone for the coast, Pacific Daylight Standard Time Zone. Larson says she has done extensive research on keeping the clocks consistent and has found that moving them twice a year has negative health impacts, leads to more crashes on the road and can be a nightmare for parents with young children.

I lean toward Daylight time the whole year. It should be noted though that if we did that sunrise on December 21st would be at 8:53 a.m. For part of the year those with an early commute would certainly be travelling in the dark. It wouldn't matter to me but for obvious reasons it's easier for those in Washington State, and much easier for those in California, to switch to Daylight time the whole year. But as I say I lean toward Daylight time the whole year.
