As clocks turn back, Peace Region and Fort Nelson align with Alberta’s time

first_imgAs Alberta goes off of Daylight Savings Time, Fort St. John will be on the same time as Calgary – in the Mountain Standard Time Zone.When Daylight Savings comes back just before next Spring, we go onto the same time as Vancouver and the rest of BC springs forward. On Sunday, November 1st, Daylight Savings Time comes to an end and the time will be changing in many different places, but not here in the Peace Region.Communities in the Peace Region don’t observe Daylight Savings Time, and remain on Mountain Standard Time.Fort Nelson joined them this year, and is staying on MST year-round, as well.- Advertisement -Randy McLean, City Manager for the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality said they had a plebiscite during the last municipal election in November 2014.“During that time, over 75% of the community voted in favour of staying on permanent daylight savings time rather than switching back and forth,” he said.As time changes in many places, things can get confusing when the rest of Canada remains on Daylight Standard Time and constantly shift back and forth between hours.Advertisementlast_img read more


first_imgEXCLUSIVE: THE DONEGAL County Board is refusing to be drawn into a war of words with their Dublin counterparts over the Paddy McBrearty ‘biting’ incident.Dublin officials have been widely quoted in the Dublin press today, some of them appearing to cast doubt on the incident.But while Paddy is refusing to comment, sources insist he was bitten during the match between Donegal and Dublin in Ballybofey on Sunday. The Donegal County Board, in a statement to Donegal Daily, says the issue is a matter for the GAA HQ investigations committee.“The Donegal County Board’s position remains unchanged and we will be fully co-operating with the CCCC investigation into the alleged incident,” said a Donegal GAA County Board spokesman.However Dublin GAA chairman Andy Kettle has given a number of interviews today.“Our medic was taken in to see an injury but it was a bruise, not a laceration, a bruise,” said Kettle in one interview. We understand however that the bite on McBrearty’s shoulder broke the skin. He was later treated at Letterkenny hospital.Kettle had said: “I don’t accept that something did happen.“Until I am asked officially to investigate by the Donegal County Board I won’t be doing anything.” DONEGAL COUNTY BOARD: ‘WE ARE CO-OPERATING WITH GAA OVER ALLEGED BITE INCIDENT’ was last modified: April 10th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
