We will lose an hour of sleep this weekend.

Daylight Saving Time officially begins at 3 in the morning Sunday.

That’s when we turn our clocks an hour forward.

On the plus side, it also means it will no longer get dark out before we eat dinner.

It’s also time when fire departments issue reminders to check that fire alarms are in good working condition.

Premier John Horgan has sent a letter to our neighbours in the south, in Washington, Oregon and California who are considering staying in Daylight Savings Time year round.

Horgan says he wants to be kept in the loop with whatever they decide and hinted if those States move to stay in Daylight Savings Time year round it might be something he would consider.

The Union of B.C. Municipalities has been pushing to end the time change for several years and the B.C. Chamber of Commerce is also supportive.
