Alberta Proposes Standard Time Year Round

 

The days of Albertans changing their clocks twice a year could soon be coming to an end. A backbencher named Thomas Dang has put forward a private member’s bill that would put Alberta on central standard time year round. The new buzz words are “It’s time we had one time,” the line was used after introducing the legislation in the house this week. According to the backbencher, he says thousands of Albertans have told him in consultations and surveys they want one-time year round for a better quality of life. This includes the parents of young children who find it difficult to maintain a healthy routine for their children, seniors who take time-sensitive medication and farmers that find the time change impacts their routine-dependent operations. The change would put Alberta on the same time as Saskatchewan year round. It’s been revealed that Ben Franklin’s proposal of something like daylight saving time was written as a joke and not to be taken seriously… Ed
