The semi-annual time change arrives this weekend, with clocks being moved ahead one hour on Sunday, March 14.
With many British Columbians not wanting to change clocks, it is time to stop with the time change.
Let’s look at how many places do not change, noting the rest of the world adjusts to them.
These places include Saskatchewan, Arizona, Hawaii, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Southampton Islands, Peace River Regional District and parts of Ontario and Quebec.
Changing the clocks twice per year sends our circadian rhythm out of control for a time.
How important is our health versus changing clocks to gain some daylight at the end of the day?
We should not need to check with other governments to determine if it is OK to stop the time change. We in British Columbia can and should make our own decisions.
Let’s not waste any more time. Let’s be ourselves and take a stand. Or do we have puppets in place of our elected officials?
