Daylight-Saving Time a Step Closer to Remaining Permanent
The change between standard and daylight-saving time is another step closer to coming to an end.
American Senator Marco Rubio introduced the Sunshine Protection Act last week, which would allow daylight-saving time to be made permanent in the United States. He says ending the practice has bipartisan support.
If passed, the act would take effect in November 2023.
That would mean Americans, and possibly Canadians, would not “fall back” this November.
Premier Doug Ford has said he’s all for a switch, but it would require alignment with New York.
Other premiers have stated they are also in favour of keeping daylight-saving time year-round.
This is the weekend that most Canadians “spring forward,” by switching their clocks ahead one hour. Daylight-saving time begins at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 12, 2023.
