Daylight savings time in Canada is this weekend and people are already complaining
It's that time of year again: on Sunday, Canadians will set their clocks to "spring forward" an hour for Daylight Savings Time.
Night owls can look forward to an extra hour of light in the evening — but with the drawback of more darkness in the morning.
The time-change tradition is observed across Canada, with a few notable exceptions such as Saskatchewan (the province remains on Central Standard Time year-round) and a few communities in Ontario and Quebec.
Get ready to move the clocks ahead! We are springing forward at 2 a.m. next Sunday morning on March 8th! #DaylightSavings pic.twitter.com/wRFie0EJyD— Joe Fitzwater (@meteojoewowk) March 1, 2020
But with the European Union officially scrapping Daylight Savings Time by 2021, plenty of Canadians are ready to abolish the age-old tradition, too.
This Canadian woman had a lot of feelings on the subject:
Can you believe daylight savings starts in 2 weeks? This archaic practice must stop. pic.twitter.com/DH7jC8CJxM— TarotPugs (@TarotPugs) February 29, 2020
And this Ottawa woman called on the U.S. to lead the way in scrapping Daylight Savings:

STOP USING DAYLIGHT SAVINGS! It's stupid and annoying.
Your copy-cat neighbour, Canada
While this Ontario woman decided to petition Doug Ford instead:

Please do us a favour: end daylight savings!
But really, this Toronto woman put things best:
Daylight savings is a scam that’s been happening for so long that no one’s even sure who’s being scammed for what and one day we will all finally admit that Saskatchewan was right and the rest of us were wrong— Anne Thériault (@anne_theriault) March 10, 2019
We might be losing an hour of our weekend, but at least Canadians can look forward to some warmer temperatures as we officially head into spring.
