Some History on Fall Daylight Savings Time
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 Savings Time. Currently Alberta uses it and has since 1918. For a while it looked like the Alberta Government might do away with the twice yearly time change by at the end of October 2017, they scrapped the Bill suggesting the Removal of 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 3rd 2019. For details of 2020 and beyond please see visit TimeandDate.com
