Until it changes, though, remember that not-so-old adage, "Spring forward, fall back".

The change would not affect B.C.'s Peace Region or the Kootenay town of Creston, which are permanently on mountain time and would, under the new legislation, remain there.

"I understand all of these issues and they'll be considered in the legislation", he said.

British Columbia is pushing ahead with a plan to eliminate seasonal time changes, but when it would happen remains a matter of timing.

Alabama lawmakers have backed a resolution to "forever put an end to the deadly, energy-wasting, productivity-killing, twice-yearly changing of time".

Premier John Horgan recently discussed the possibility of abandoning the time change with Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee and other USA politicians.

Breaux said people know what to expect and that the common complaint about being exhausted after losing an hour's sleep when time "springs forward" are exaggerated. Other jurisdictions will follow, he predicted: "I'm confident that they will catch up to us - this is not just a B.C. phenomenon". "It is a phenomenon across the continent".

During the July 2000 summit of the Group of Eight major economies in Okinawa , leaders had dinner in the castle's north hall. This was because " Shuri Castle acted as the local headquarters for the Imperial Japanese Army" according to CNN .

In the halls of the British Columbia Parliament, B.C. Premier John Horgan sounded unworried about the hiccups in Sacramento and Washington, D.C.

"Creston and Cranbrook are right beside each other like Kamloops and Kelowna". Sleep experts are warning that moving to permanent daylight saving time is not great for our health.

Dillon, a former junior high teacher, maintains Indiana's current sunrise times of 8 a.m. or later during some of the fall and winter are unsafe for children and others walking along roadways. "Both sleep deprivation and social jetlag have negative effects on physical and mental health, including increased risks for diabetes, obesity, heart disease, depression, and some forms of cancer". Washington State's Governor Jay Inslee signed a law earlier this year to move permanently to daylight time, but the change needs approval from the U.S. Congress, which has not indicated when or whether it would accept the shift. Permanent DST means less light in the day and more at night.

A recent BC government survey saw 93%, or 225,000 people, indicate their support for a permanent move to daylight time.

Scholars in a variety of fields have been pushing for permanent daylight time for years, noting the original reason for the semi-annual shift has lost its relevance today and plenty of worldwide research suggests the practice is actually unsafe.
