Clocks go back an hour as we return to standard time

Clock back

We will gain an extra hour of sleep this weekend as Sunday marks the end of daylight saving time. 

At 2:00 a.m. on November 3rd, people will need to turn their clocks back one hour to reflect the new time.  

When most Canadian put the clock back one hour before going to bed Saturday night, it might be one of the last times that will happen in British Columbia.   

The B-C government has started an effort to formally do away with seasonal time changes.  

Scholars in a variety of fields have been pushing for permanent daylight time for years, noting the original reason for the semi-annual shift has lost its relevance today and plenty of international research suggests the practice is actually dangerous.

But Canadian governments are unlikely to pull the trigger unless the United States, the country's largest trading partner, does so first.  

Today, only Saskatchewan and some cities have opted not to embrace the seasonal changes and maintain one time zone year-round.

    "When the (Niagara) Region took over waste management, we got the short end of the stick at first. When the Region started in transit, it was buying and running buses before it got the OK to do it. The same push is happening again with the airport … we need to push back and say no," said Welland City Councillor Theo Leo Van Vliet.
