Alberta officially scraps bill to end Daylight Saving Time

Nov 1 2017, 6:23 pm

Next week’s mornings will be bright, but the same can’t be said for Bill 203’s prospects.

The Government of Alberta officially voted against the Alberta Standard Time Act, the bill that, if passed, would have eliminated the use of Daylight Saving Time and make Alberta akin to Saskatchewan with a set clock.

A total of 46 MLAs voted for Bill 203 to be eliminated on Monday, October 30, with only six MLAs opposed.

The bill had been rejected in September, but lived on due to a show of support from the public.

Daylight Saving Time will turn the clocks back by an hour this Sunday, November 5, meaning an extra hour of sleep, an earlier sunrise, and an earlier sunset.

The time change will happen automatically for any devices connected to the internet, but you’ll have to figure out the manual settings for all those microwaves, ovens, and grandfather clocks.
