THUNDER BAY – Spring ahead in the spring, fall back in the Fall. Daylight Savings Time starts at 02:00AM on Sunday. That means for most people in Canada they will set their clocks ahead one hour before going to bed tonight.

Most smart devices and computers will automatically change.

Daylight Savings Time started during the First World War.  On April 30th, 1916, Germany and its World War I ally Austria-Hungary were the first to use DST (German: Sommerzeit) as a way to conserve coal during wartime. Britain, most of its allies, and many European neutrals soon followed suit. Russia and a few other countries waited until the next year and the United States adopted it in 1918. (Source: Wikipedia)

In recent years, Russia and Afghanistan have abandoned Daylight Savings Time.

The first week of the Daylight Savings Time plan will have many people losing an hours sleep as they will stay up later in the evenings.
