Ontario MPP puts forward bill to make Daylight Saving Time standard time – Global News – 2020-10-07

An Ontario MPP has put forth a bill that would essentially make Daylight Saving Time standard time, ending the practice of changing clocks back and forth by an hour twice a year.

Jeremy Roberts, MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean tabled Bill 214 – the Time Amendment Act, which would end the bi-annual tradition of moving the clocks forward in the spring and back in the fall.

The bill passed its second reading at Queen’s Park on Wednesday. No date has been set for the third reading.
