Just a reminder that this is the weekend to set your clocks back an hour.
You will get an extra hour of sleep as Daylight saving time 2023 will end at 2:00 am on Sunday, November 5th.
A lot of Albertans will change their clocks before going to sleep on Saturday night. Most wifi-connected devices such as cell phones and cable boxes will change automatically, but it's still a good idea to double check them.
While you are changing your clocks back, local fire departments also suggest changing the batteries in your home's smoke detectors as well. Doing this every six-months helps to keep your family safe.
Alberta did explore the possibility of switching permanently to Daylight Savings Time in the 2021 Municipal election referendum questions. It seems Albertans are very torn on the idea of saving time, with 50.2 per cent of those who participated voted in favour of keeping the system as it is, and 49.8 percent voted in favour of changing it.
