Every year we wonder aloud why we we still respect Daylight Savings Time (DST). 

Please Note:  Do not donate anything to this petition. It is not a fund raiser. 

Originally it helped to save fuel during war times, but today it is a general inconvenience with possible life-threatening consequences. Though energy savings are no longer seen as a result of DST, statistics consistently show that car accidents, workplace injuries, depression all spike for weeks after the change each year. We can do better and some provinces already have!

Let's Abolish Daylight Savings Time Canada-Wide.
This time next year, let's laugh at the archaic way we used to punish ourselves for WAY longer than we ever should have - as we wake up from a full night's sleep, without missing any appointments and without having to remember to go to bed earlier to avoid the "jet lag" of this ritual.

Think of the parents who are forced to adjust schedules of small children who don't understand why. Think of exhausted people with long work hours who suddenly shoehorn another hour in, and of anyone who's sleep is affected who drives themselves to work,  and of the casualties their mistakes may cause. 

Please Prime Minister Trudeau: Stop this. Make Canada lead the way for any other countries that haven't already made this shift.
