Change Your Clocks Back ... UNLESS You Live In Civilized Saskatchewan!!

All over North America this weekend, people will be setting their clocks back an hour, fixing their DVD / VCR's and getting their schedules adjusted to the time change ....... unless of course you live in the Province of Saskatchewan ... one of the very few remaining civilized places where such nonsense is ignored!

Right on! Here in Ontario it will be mayhem whilst folks ajust.... but then who can tell the difference! Long time this crap was dumped but no, they have to "follow" what the US empire does!

Huh? Don't you mean setting clocks forward? Spring ahead, you know...

Actually, people moved their clocks ahead one hour.

Much of Western Canada is already one hour ahead in the winter. With Daylight Saving Time, many of these places have their clocks two hours ahead of where the sun passes over the middle of the time zone meridians, e.g. 75, 90, 105, 120, 135 degrees. In the summertime, Inuvik is has its clock set three hours ahead of the solar time. If it is 12 noon solar time, Inuvik has its clock set at 3 p.m.--not that it matters way up north in the summer. If one heads directly south as the bird flies, Juneau AK is two hours behind Inuvik.

Most of Western Canada is already on Daylight Saving Time in the winter because of the skewed time zone boundary lines. In the summer time, much of Western Canada is essentially under double Daylight Saving Time--except for Saskatchewan which stays on single DST throughout the year.


Sorry Red ... all the more reason why I am so happy that in Saskatchewan we don't have to worry about such things twice a year! ;)
