It's that time. Clocks move ahead one hour tonight before you go to bed. It officially happens at 2 a.m. Sunday morning.
The Manitoba government is planning to engage with residents and stakeholders to hear how permanent daylight saving time would affect them. There are plans in place in many provinces and states to stay on this time permanently.
This will mean the sun will come up just before 8 a.m. Sunday morning but will not set until about 7:30 p.m.
Manitoba returns to daylight saving time on Sunday, March 12th when 2am becomes 3am. For now, we are scheduled to fall back and change our clocks again on November 5th.
The province says the change from daylight saving time in spring to standard time in the fall will continue in Manitoba until neighbouring jurisdictions pass legislation adopting permanent daylight saving time as well.
In a press release, the provincial government states that previously planned public engagement will begin when neighbouring jurisdictions take action, to ensure the perspectives gathered from Manitobans are timely and relevant.
