Clocks go forward this week-end, but not in the Peace

But Councillor Larry Evans says there is a downfall to this.

He says because of this, for half of the year we are on Alberta time and the other half we are on B.C time.

In a 1974 referendum vote, Peace River Regional District communities voted to change our time zone to Mountain Standard Time all year round. 

 The referendum had four options on it, including Mountain Standard Time and Mountain Standard with Daylight Savings Time.

Evans says, most residents wanted the second option, but accidentally voted for Mountain Standard Time without Daylight Saving Time

Therefore, here in the Peace Region, we don’t follow daylight savings time and our time won’t change Saturday night.
