Record numbers of British Columbians are sharing their views on whether the province should continue observing daylight saving time.
Only a week into the engagement, more than 158,000 responses to the online survey have been collected.
The response to the daylight saving time survey has exceeded that of several recent initiatives. For comparison, 19,291 surveys were completed in the seven days following the launch of the engagement on cannabis regulations.
The survey will be available until 4 p.m. on July 19, 2019, at the link below. The survey website includes background information on the history of time observance in British Columbia and the impact of various options, such as changes to the timings of sunrise and sunset at different times of year.
The survey takes approximately five minutes to complete.
In addition to the online survey, organizations and individuals are invited to provide written submissions about time observance, which impacts many key B.C. industries, such as agriculture and transportation.
