Daylight Savings Time

Daylight Savings Time. Is it an archaic ritual of our Pastoral past? Or is it a savvy marketing tool for Seasonal Effective Disorder aides?

Honestly, most people I know work as cubicle monkey's for companies that force them to sit indoors, under florescent lights for 8+ hours a day. Do these people care if they get an extra hour of daylight in the morning? Of course, not. Would they prefer to actually get some sunlight at the end of the day when they emerge from their glass and steel cocoonYou bet. So why are we still using Daylight Saving Time?

Someone has got to be make money off this foolish choice. If there wasn't money to be made we wouldn't still have to remember to 'fall' back in the Fall and 'spring' ahead in the Spring.

I would never have imaged that Saskatchewan would be the only province not in the dark about DST!

I heard one time that it is actually for saving electricity and daylight savings time saves tons electricity apparently.
