Provincial government looking for feedback on daylight saving time

Daylight saving time is once again on the agenda for the provincial government.

The NDP is looking for British Columbians to share their opinion on the controversial biannual switch of the clocks.

You can do so by completing a survey on the government’s website.

For most areas of B.C., the clocks are pushed forward an hour in the spring and put back the same amount in the fall.

"As our neighbours in the western United States move toward permanent daylight saving time, it's a good time to think about what will work best for British Columbia," said Premier John Horgan.

"I invite people to consider our options and take part in an online survey that will help us decide whether to leave things as they are or if it's time to make a change."

The online survey is open until July 19 and provides some background information that may affect people’s decisions.

Horgan says he anticipates people to have some strong opinions on the issue and as the provincial government continues to monitor other jurisdictions’ decisions on this matter, he looks forward to the public input.
