Daylight saving time has returned – except for Saskatchewan, which doesn’t observe the twice-yearly time-change.
On Sunday at 2 a.m.. most Canadian turned their clocks forward – better known as “spring forward.”
The idea was envisioned by New Zealander George Vernon Hudson in 1895 to make the world a brighter place as spring begins to override winter.
Daylight saving time always takes place on the second Sunday in March.
As mentioned, daylight saving time is not observed uniformly around the world, or in Canada.
A couple of countries in South America do.
In most of Asia and Africa, they don’t.
In places like the UK and Europe, the switch doesn’t happen until March 31.
Even in Canada, time has been skewed.
Like Saskatchewan: CST is used mostly province-wide AND primarily for elections; Lloydminster is an anomaly and Swift Current & area has some time-change “deniers.”
Creighton near Flin Flon, Manitoba unofficially observes time with Manitoba – so there are some exceptions within Saskatchewan.
In B.C., daylight-saving-opponents include Fort St. John, Charlie Lake, Taylor, Dawson Creek and Creston
