Daylight saving time (or not)

Just when I thought the NDP government had come up with a good idea, they have sent it back to a standing committee.

Dear editor,

Just when I thought the NDP government had come up with a good idea, they have sent it back to a standing committee. I had to look up what a standing committee was and I found out that it is a committee that is set up by the government. They probably didn’t have anything to do so they are now going to study if we should change our clocks or not. This is a good example of how the NDP spends our tax dollars.

A simple vote in the house would be all the studying they should need on a simple matter like changing our clocks. Why make a mountain out of a molehill? Some of their NDP friends from Ontario must have told them it was a bad idea.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I really hate having to change all our clocks twice a year. It seems to be a few days to get used to the change in time every time we do it. The only complaints I have heard are that if people want to watch a hockey game that is in B.C. it won’t start till 9.p.m. If they don’t want to stay up that late they can always record it. It would not take long to get used to not having to change your clocks twice a year.

If you want to have a say in this matter get in touch with your MLA and let them know your ideas on changing our clocks.

James A. Cook, Westerose
