    get rid of day light savings time

    It is a pain in the ass and statistically leads to more accidents due to the time change.I say get rid of it.

    You are most welcome to join the progressive West Coast thinking. BC voted for and got laws to abandon time changes (stay on permanent GST). The only delay now is to align with California. While they also voted for the same, I understand they need support from their federal government to implement it.

    They are NOT getting rid of Daylight Savings Time, they want to get rid of Standard Time, making DST permanent. Which according to some studies is backwards. What they say is they do need to get rid of DST making Standard Time permanent.

    I do not believe the creator of this poll is campaigning to keep Standard Time, so the poll is flawed.

    Cheers

    The poll says get rid of DST....which by default leaves us with Standard Time....so not flawed as to intent, just awkwardly worded....?????

    My preference would be to have standard time in Alberta all year round same as Saskatchewan. Prefer the extra light in the morning rather than the evening.

    I hope they reverse it. Have daylight savings in winter and time change for summer. We don't need sunlight at 10 PM.

    Donít need a time change at all, it serves no useful purpose.

    Just get out of bed earlier.


    When I reminded my 80 something Mother about the change to Daylight Saving Time she commented that she would change her clock in the morning as she didn't want to get up at 3 in the norning just to change her clock. There is some logic there I guess. I wonder if anyone actually does that?

    If you get out of bed earlier when itís daylight savings time itís even darker. Donít see how that solves anything.

    Id rather have the light in the evening. So would prefer to abandon Standard time. It's all arbitrary anyways. We could just shift Greenwich ahead an hour and it would be done everywhere, instantly.

    Ps, the poll is flawed because the intent is not real clear. Should be a multi value poll with all options listed and a histogram result.

    Please please.... pretty please.... Stay on Daylight Savings time. BC .. take the lead for a change... Ignore the Yanks,,, Lets just do it. We voted (by a huge majority) yes last year to stay on Daylight Savings time.

    Besides My new fancy does everything itself watch, can't be changed cuz it gets its time from the Atomic time clock in Ft.Collins Colorado... My Radio/GPS/CD/BT/USB/clock in my car is the same.
