Albertans will continue to change their clocks twice a year. It would not be good for business, according to an Alberta legislature committee that examined a bill to keep the province on the same time year-round.
NDP MLA Thomas Dang proposed the change. He says his work shows most Albertans want to stop changing their clocks. The legislature will have to ratify the committee’s decision.
Premier Rachel Notley says several questions remain unanswered and the issue is not settled.
In the BC Peace, Dawson Creek keeps the same time year-round. Creston, British Columbia and most of Saskatchewan recognize Central Standard Time which means they do not change their clocks.
