Daylight survey says!

The results of the provincial online survey asking whether or not B.C. should stay on daylight savings time are not in yet but we do know that the topic generated a great deal of interest.

CTV News is reporting that more than 223,000 British Columbians voted in the online survey asking whether B.C. should continue changing the clocks each year or make daylight saving time permanent.

“It’s clear that the people of B.C. welcomed the opportunity to provide input on this important issue,” said Premier John Horgan on Monday.

“Daylight saving time is a practice that impacts everyone, and I’m pleased so many people took the time to share their views about the best direction for our province moving forward.”

A total of 98,549 surveys were completed in the Lower Mainland, 62,386 on Vancouver Island and the South Coast/Sunshine Coast, and 33,583 in the Thompson-Okanagan.

The results of the survey are expected to be released in the coming weeks but we do know that the province received 13 formal submissions from organizations and industry experts on how any changes could impact the province.

The poll results will be looked at and compared to how other provinces and the western United States observe time.
