Are you familiar with this phenomenon wherein as days are drawing closer and closer and as it becomes shorter and shorter as well, the clocks are turning back one hour? For the information of many, this is actually what we call as daylight savings time and to be more precise, when we say daylight savings time, it pertains to a biannual practice in which time will spring forward during March it will fall backward during November. We want you to know that the reason behind why daylight savings time is to conserve energy and it was first used) during the First World War since then, it has consequently spread to seventy countries across the globe and this number seems to grow day by day. Yes, it is true that tons of us are so to the changes in the season, especially those who are living outside the tropic region and have four seasons, yet even if that is the case, many are still calling to end this practice and just resort to a one time system every year.
At the upcoming convention of the Unions of B.C. Municipalities or UBCM, one of the participating towns are strongly suggesting the abolition of the daylight savings time. According to the petition that was submitted by the Grand Forks, it was cited there that in the recent research they have conducted, the practice of daylight savings time, most especially during springtime when we tend to lose as much as an hour of sleep, it actually has a bad effect both on the cognitive awareness and the health of the people..
In the proposal that they will present during the convention, they are strongly urging the committee to make a petition that their province consult the British Columbians so that they practice of daylight savings time will no longer exist. When the day of the convention finally arrived, Grand Forks presented their case in front of the attendees after, which, it was validated by particular organization that is tasked to give credits to where it is due, to UBCM but, the petition was not able to get the support it needed the most from the UBCM committee. For those of you who may be thinking about the possible reason why the resolution presented by Grand Folks became unsuccessful, well that is because in the notes in the resolutions book, the committee has said that the UBCM had in their three previous conventions to support suggestions of eradicating the twice a year time change within the province.
In the year two thousand fifteen, residents of another provice have launched the same petition that asked for their province to be freed from the said practice. Based on the petition they submitted, there are so many studies that are contradictory involving the ability of the daylight savings time practice to lessen the energy used during long days.
