My blog readers know that I have been advocating an end to the semi-annual ritual of moving our clocks back in the fall and forward each spring. I am a strong believer in leaving the clocks alone and remaining on Daylight Savings Time all year-long.

Last week, the B.C. government introduced a bill aimed at eventually making daylight time permanent across the province, ending the twice-yearly changes to and from standard time.

The European Union also backs ending the needless time switching.

I’ve  had it with falling back and springing forward.  I find it depressing to see that sun setting in the mid-afternoon and driving home from work in pitch black.  I can easily sacrifice the pleasure of a bright and sunny early morning wake up.

I’m hoping that the B.C. government’s bill will work its way across the province. This movement is already being debated in several states and will find its way to the US Congress.

This needs your help too by writing emails to media and to your elected officials at all levels.
