Change to Daylight Savings Time?

Did anyone else miss this?  Or am I the only one?

From CBC

Currently in Canada and the U.S., daylight time runs from April through October. The exception in Canada is Saskatchewan, which keeps its clocks the same throughout the year.

The American change, due to take effect this autumn if U.S. President George W. Bush signs it into law, could cause headaches for Canadians during March and November, the two months the two countries would be out of sync.

Yay for extra daylight, but it is going to be a little weird!

    I’d be in favor of no DST at all.

    Some states in the USA do not even have DST (Indiana, for instance) and remain on standard time year-round. They are out of sync with one neighbor or another throughout the year. Doesn’t seem to hurt their economy, per se.

    This also demonstrates that observing DST seems to be left up to the individual states instead of being federally mandated.

  2. On top of it all, Indiana will be on daylight savings time starting next year, but they haven’t decided whether it will be Eastern or Central. In the past is was Eastern Standard Time all the time.

    Newfoundland keeps its clocks too.

    I think NF is offset by 30 minutes.

    For NF, and maybe SK too, its related to the timelines. Something about not making sense for everybody. Dark too early, light to late.

    All very confusing…
