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. Albeit the fact that many of us are so to the changes in the season due to the existence of the four seasons, many people are actually calling for the purpose of suggesting to have this practice ended and just stick to a single time system all throughout the year.
There is an approaching convention of the Union of the B.C. Municipalities or the UBCM and one of the towns participating is strongly suggesting the abolition of the daylight savings time. In accordance to the resolution that was submitted by the Grand Forks, it was stated there that in several researches conducted regarding the effects of daylight savings time, the said practice, especially during springtime when people are losing an hour of sleep, has a bad effect on their health as well as cognitive awareness..
In the proposal, they are urging the UBCM to petition their province to consult the British Columbians for the purpose of eliminating the daylight savings time. At the time the convention was held, right after Grand Forks presented their case, the resolution was then validated by a group is authorize to do such a job yet, to much of their disappointment, it did not get any support from committee of resolutions. Based on the notes in the resolution files, that the committee will not give its support or will back up any suggestions to get rid of the bi annual time change in the province.
A particular province residents have submitted a petition in the year two thousand fifteen, asking their province to stop the practice of daylight savings. One of the things they pointed out on their petition were the contradictory studies revolving around the ability of daylight saving time to actually shorten the energy used during long days.
