Abolish Daylight Saving Time in Ontario

Whereas Daylight Saving Time is terrible:

  • A study by McMaster University found a 17 per cent jump in the number fatalities resulting from traffic accidents on the Monday after the daylight saving time change compared to an average Monday. [1]
  • Adjusting the clocks to summer time in March increases the risk of myocardial infarction in the following week, according to a 2008 Swedish study. [2]
  • DST is arbitrary and unnecessary.

We the undersigned:

  • Call on Minister Naqvi to repeal sections 3, 4 and 5 of the Time Act to abolish DST in the province of Ontario [3.]
