DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME COULD BECOME PERMANENT IN ONTARIO

We’re a little under a month away from Daylight Savings Time coming to an end, but what if it never ended? 

That’s the idea behind a new private members bill presented yesterday in the House of Commons.

Ottawa West – Nepean MPP Jeremy Roberts tabled the Time Amendment Act, which would “clear the road for Ontario to end the bi-annual process of changing our clocks” and implement permanent daylight saving time. 

The bill has already passed the second reading in legislature at Queen’s Park.

CTV reports that If the bill passes it means it would remain lighter for longer in the evening throughout the entire year.

On the other hand though, the sun wouldn’t rise in the Greater Toronto Area until nearly 9 a.m. around Christmas.
