It’s time for Fernie folk to share their opinion with the rest of British Columbians to speak up about the future of time.

The B.C. government has launched public consultation on how “time should be observed in B.C.” The online survey asks British Columbians whether they want change the clocks twice a year or keep the clocks consistent all year round.

“As our neighbours in the western United States move toward permanent daylight saving time, it’s a good time to think about what will work best for British Columbia,” Premier John Horgan said. “I invite people to consider our options and take part in an online survey that will help us decide whether to leave things as they are or if it’s time to make a change.”

Legislators in California, Oregon and Washington have proposed bills to end the bi-annual time change and observe Daylight Saving Time year-round.

Most areas of B.C. move the clocks forward in the summer months and back to standard time in the winter. But there are areas in the province that do not change the clocks.

The online survey will be available here from June 24, 2019, to July 19, 2019.
