Provincial governments across Canada face a big-time decision as they deal with an American move to extend daylight time by two months, so that it starts on the first weekend in March and ends in November.

I love that different political jursidictions can change the hour of the day that the sun will rise at.

And yet, the sun will still rise at the same time everyday.

Update, the next evening:
Apparently the Government of Ontario wants your opinion on this whole bizzaro time-change issue. Supposedly the government is serious about getting your input; they set up an e-mail account.
Ontario residents will be able to e-mail their opinions to the government on whether the province should add two more months of daylight time each year to stay in sync with the United States.

Attorney General Michael Bryant said the government is turning to the internet to gather views from different sectors of the province before it makes a decision.

The e-mail address is

Hi Matt,
Thank God someone's willing to say it. I mean, really, what time is it? This shouldn't be so hard to deal with. While I like sunshine as much as the next man (well, not quite so much--3 years living in a windowless room helped foster some doubts), I wonder if we couldn't just leave well enough alone, live with a shifting mass of daylight throughout the year, and allow me one less disruption in my sleep schedule.
As a final note, I should like to mention that if the USA (the lovely land I have somehow chosen to call my home for the next few years) has its way, there will be more "savings" time than regular time. I hope this is an interest-bearing account.

I think you guys will be better off with extra daylight savings time. I mean really, when did you ever get up before noon anyway, so who cares if it stays dark until 9 or 10 in the morning?
