Fall Daylight Savings Time Change
Clocks Fall Back in Calgary.
Don’t forget to put your clocks back soon.
At 2am on Sunday November 4th 2018, the clocks will be put back one hour. This will affect Alberta.
Germany was the first country to introduce Daylight Savings Time. Not long after, Canada followed suit. It was initiated to make best use of the time the sun shone rather than have people sleeping during that time.
Benjamin Franklin first entertained the idea in the 1770’s, but an English Builder: William Willett, was the first to consider it a viable option when he returned to the idea in 1907. Yet Germany was the first to institute it in 1915.
Each province in Canada has its own set of rules on when or whether to use Daylight Time. Currently Alberta uses it. For a while it looked like the Alberta Government might do away with the twice yearly time change but at the end of October 2017, they scrapped the bill to remove Daylight Saving Time.
Nevertheless the debate on the advantages and disadvantages of time change continues. For now however, the status quo remains.
So remember to put those clocks back on Sunday November 4th 2018.
