Final spring forward: Yukoners to end seasonal time changes
For the love of god, can we please just do this federally already? I’m sick of my sleep getting even more fucked up than usual twice a year and it taking days to put it even somewhat right again.
We’ve been over this before. Everyone, like literally everyone, hates this shit. Just stop.
Yukoners will be changing their clocks for the last time this weekend after the government announced the territory will no longer participate in seasonal time changes.
On Sunday, Yukon residents will adjust their clocks an hour forward for the annual spring time change, as usual. After that, however, the government said the territory will remain on Pacific Daylight Saving Time.
The decision follows recent public consultations, in which the majority of respondents said they were in favour of putting an end to the practice of changing the clocks twice a year.
The survey drew more than 4,800 responses from Yukon residents and organizations between Jan. 6 and Feb. 16, according to a press release by the territorial government. The results of the study showed that 93 per cent of participants wanted seasonal time changes to stop with 70 per cent of those in favour of permanent Pacific Daylight Saving Time.
