DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME COMES EARLY THIS YEAR


CLOCKS MOVE FORWARD
THREE WEEKS EARLIER


British Columbians are reminded that daylight saving time will start this Sunday, March 9, and end Nov. 2.

“British Columbians overwhelmingly supported aligning daylight saving time dates with the United States and other Canadian provinces,” said Attorney General Wally Oppal.

Exceptions will be areas that have historically chosen to observe different time zones. The Peace River region does not observe daylight saving time, so its clocks will not change. The East Kootenay region observes mountain time and will continue to synchronize its clocks with Alberta.

The provincial regulation changing the dates British Columbia observes daylight saving time was approved in 2006 and took effect Jan. 1, 2007. Clocks are moved ahead one hour at 2 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and move back on the first Sunday in November.
