Alberta government taking another look at scrapping Daylight Saving Time

For the second time in two years, the Alberta government is looking at scrapping the switch-over to Daylight Saving Time in the province.

On Tuesday, the provincial government announced an online survey through which Albertans can share their thoughts on whether the province should continue to observe Daylight Saving Time.

This move, by Alberta’s UCP government, comes just two years after the province’s previous NDP government decided not to scrap Daylight Saving Time.

“We know people have strong opinions about changing their clocks twice a year and we want to hear them,” Service Alberta Minister Nate Glubish said in a statement.

“As more Canadian provinces and territories, and some American states, are having discussions about this, it’s important that we hear from Albertans.”

The UCP government hasn’t expressed its support for getting rid of Daylight Saving Time but the statement from Glubish does point out that it’s a move that’s becoming more widespread.
