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? This is what we call as daylight savings time and speaking of daylight savings time, one thing that we want you to know about it is the fact that it is a biannual practice wherein time will spring forward during March and it will fall backwards in November. It has been said that the reason behind the existence of daylight savings time is for the conservation of energy and this practice was first used during the first World War in Germany and ever since then, it has been used by over seventy countries all over the world. 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.
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. 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 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. During the convention and after the presentation of the resolution, it was then Validated by an authoritative body however, the resolution was not able to get support from committee of resolutions. If yu are wondering why they were not able to get the support they needed from the UBCM committee, well that is due to the fact that in one of the notes in the resolutions book, the committee have decided that they will not support any suggestion that has something to do with eliminating the biannual practice or the biannual change of time in the said 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.
