Lawmakers in Alberta, Canada are entertaining the idea of removing the semi-annual switch of Daylight Saving Time (DST).
Update: Time Zone Change Study
A legislative committee in Alberta, Canada is set to study the effects of a permanent time zone change.
An online survey asking “Is it time to do away with Daylight Saving Time?” has sparked public discussion and a legislative debate in the Canadian province of Alberta.
“We have received in the first three days of the survey, more than 17,000 responses already and the vast majority of them, support stopping changing our clocks.” Thomas Dang, Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) in Alberta, told CBC News.
The survey is closing on February 28, and depending on the outcome, the government is hoping to have a bill drafted by mid-March.
