Grande Prairie residents will get to have their say on whether Alberta should do away with Daylight Saving Time at a local meeting next month. Bill 203 is before legislature to create Alberta Standard Time, which would be six hours behind coordinated universal time year round.
Written input was taken earlier this year, and now public meetings are being held in four cities across the province. The tour will start in Grande Prairie on September 8th, with a session at the Sandman Hotel from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Anyone wanting to present to the subcommittee must register online ahead of time. More than two-thirds of the 13,500 Albertans who responded to a recent government survey said the province should scrap the fall time change.
