Eliminate Daylight Savings

Background information

I petition that we eliminate the practice of changing clocks by one hour each Spring and Fall, otherwise known as Daylight Savings. As the daylight in the Northwest Territories does not align with other parts of Canada for us to benefit from the energy savings that Daylight Savings is meant produce, I petition that we follow Central Standard Time year round as does the Province of Saskatchewan.
