Daylight savings deadline

Last chance to express your opinion on daylight savings time in B.C.

The province has been asking people to share their views on how time should be observed in B.C. through an online survey and written submissions, but that portal closes today at 4 p.m.

Premier John Horgan says as Washington, Oregon and California move toward permanent daylight saving time, now is a good time to think about what will work best for B.C.

Most of Canada "springs forward" into daylight time during summer months and "falls back" to standard time in the winter.

The online survey website has information on the history of time observance in B.C. and the impact of various options, such as changes to the timings of sunrise and sunset.

"I know many people will have strong preferences on this complex question, and this is an opportunity to express them and help government decide our next steps," Horgan said in a news release.

"As we monitor what's happening in other jurisdictions, I look forward to input from British Columbians on how to set our clocks throughout the year."
