I'd rather have the hour of daylight in the evening, when it's a motivator to go outside and get some exercise after work, than in the morning when it's colder and work is imminent. Permanent DST is far preferable to me than permanent ST.

It's all an approximation either way and many places already aren't in the time zone they should theoretically be in. In practice we have already decided that for the majority of the year we prefer being one time zone off so might as well go all the way.

So instead of adjusting our arbitrarily chosen schedules to where we prefer them, we just pretend the objective measure of time, the position of the sun, is something it plainly isn't.

Humans are dumb.


The point of standardized time is to have some consistency among schedules. Rather than every person and place having their own schedule.

And human society is a lot different than it was 200 years ago. Maybe centring our days around solar noon doesn't make sense.

I would say that either permanent DST or permanent Standard Time would be preferable to bouncing between them, but it seems most people prefer DST.

You morning people can do that without having to change your clock and making the rest of us pretend you're not telling us we have to drag our lazy asses out of bed early too.

Noon is when the sun's highest in the sky. It's supposed to be at 12:00, not 1:00, and the time zones are set so that on average it's pretty close to that in most places.

BC is heading in that direction but put things on hold when the pandemic hit. Also, ours will probably be conditional on the western US states making the same change.


BC passed legislation over a year ago (but hey, congrats to Ontario for 'leading the way'), but delayed implementing it until the US west coast followed suit. Washington and Oregon have passed legislation, and California voters passed Prop 7 to do the same, but all three states require Congressional approval, so that's what's currently holding it up.

No, it wouldn't be an hour worse having standard time all year.  It would be fine. And if you like getting up early in the summer, you're free to do so.

Back in the Jimmy Carter days, the US did year-round DST one year, in an unsuccessful attempt to save energy.  It meant that I had to walk to high school in the dark, which was cold and unsafe.  Leave it on standard time the whole time, and we'll be fine.

As an Ontario resident, I'm more than ok with this.

I know mixed opinions of DST abound, but for anyone with outdoor hobbies or pursuits, this is a no-brainer.

Personally I've always found it farking depressing to be greeted with darkness at the end of a work shift.  But I acknowledge that for many people the opposite is true.

In any case, it's all academic unless New York and Quebec sign on.  Considering all the pandemic disconnects happening daily, does anyone really think 3 disparate and heavily populated regions can synchronize on a time adjustment?  It will probably take years if it happens at all.

Why does Canada have to follow what the US does are you an independent country or a territory of the US?


Have to? No. But with the amount of business social events and other things that go on across the border it makes far more sense for BC, WA, CA, and OR to follow the same time. Much like Ontario making Quebec and NY enacting the same a requirement to change.

And the same reason that when the US extended DST in 2007 Canada followed suit

When the Sun shines upon Earth, 2 - major Time points are created on opposite sides of Earth - known as Midday and Midnight.

In a single rotation of the Earth sphere, each Time corner point rotates through the other 3-corner Time points, thus creating 16 corners, 96 hours and 4-simultaneous 24-hour Days within a single rotation of Earth - equated to a Higher Order of Life Time Cube.

I agree completely.

The underlying issue was the fact that the time shifted by an hour twice a year.

Now Ontarians will have to remember who is on what where to determine whether it's too early or late to call when before it was done on a simple time zone basis.

NeoCortex42: This is so stupid. Just stick to Standard Time. If there's a few things that need seasonal hours to function better, just do that.


Because the clock changing twice a year is so much worse than keeping track of a bunch of individually adjusted schedules (and potential conflicts when they adjust on different dates).

bingethinker: The winter solstice is Dec. 21 this year. Sunrise, if we were on Daylight Time, would be 8:40 a.m. Sunset would be 5:23 p.m.

Moniker o' Shame: kdawg7736: I say that for America too, make Daylight Savings Time permanent.

ski9600: A lot of people here say that they hate Daylight Savings Time.  I don't think they realize that if we didn't have that it would be 1 hour worse.

It is Daylight Saving Time, not Savings Time.


Who care's that its not Daylight Saving's Time?

That would make more sense, but the consensus seems to be for permanent DST. I can live with that if it's the only way to get rid of the biannual flipping.

BC is heading in that direction but put things on hold when the pandemic hit. Also, ours will probably be conditional on the western US states making the same change.

Cyberluddite: So that means in December sunrise up there in that part of Canuckistan will be at, what, 10:00 a.m.?


In the winter, the Ontario sun is available for all your sun-related needs on a daily basis from 10am to 10:03am (an hour and a half hour later in Newfoundland).
