Should Fort Nelson stop observing Day Light Savings Time?

The non-binding opinion poll will be included to help local officials to gauge public thoughts on this topic.

Fort Nelson observes daylight savings time unlike other communities in the Northeast B.C.  Communities in the Peace River Regional District including Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Hudson’s Hope, Chetwynd and Tumbler Ridge all stay on Mountain Standard time year round.

The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality or Fort Nelson, is in the Pacific Time Zone and changes their clocks each fall and spring.  In the winter Fort Nelson is an hour behind the rest of Northeast B.C. and Alberta.

The question on the ballot will be as follows;

Are you in favour of staying on Mountain Standard Time (Pacific Daylight Time) the whole year around, as is currently done in other Northeast BC communities such as Fort St. John and Dawson Creek?  Yes or No
The results from the opinion poll are non-binding, but will allow the Municipality to decided if they should look into the option of changing their time zone to match the rest of Northeast B.C.
