No. No. No

ETI has indicated when they open on April 1st.

Anyone can Google : what time is it in British Columbia

This is an easy way to find out what time it is somewhere!!!

If ETI is operating on Pacific Standard Time on April 1, they will probably be the only business in B.C. to do so. British Columbia changes to Pacific Daylight Time tomorrow.

They are PST, Period, as is 99% of British Columbia.

If you are in LA, just look at your watch. We are in the same time zone.

Anyone want to start a petition to get rid of the stupidity of "Daylight Savings Time"?

This confuses a lot of people. In Unix operating systems, it was conventional to designate a time zone in a way which provides the name (e.g. Pacific), and explicitly the number of hours offset from GMT during standard time (8 for Pacific), and whether or not Daylight Saving Time is observed... so for most of B.C. TZ=PST8PDT... and I see that tools such as Time Zone Converter now support this convention. Even that isn't good enough because not every area "springs forward" or "falls back" on the same date, so now there is a huge agreed list of time zones and supporting database to describe them.

Potential buyers from Mexico (except border areas) should note that they will still be on Standard Time on April 1st, while Chilliwack will be on Daylight Savings Time. If anyone wants an Escape stuck in a shipping container and sent to another continent, they'll probably be in a place that doesn't switch to DST at all.

It would be an uphill battle. Found this on one of the news sites today:

Except for Hawaii, most of Arizona and U.S. overseas territories, the United States and about 70 countries worldwide have Daylight Saving Time — sometimes known as “Summer Time” abroad.

Germany was the first country to observe DST (in 1916, during World War I) in order to conserve coal. The practice, used during wartime, spread to other European countries and the United States. After World War II, it was up to individual states in the U.S. to decide whether or not they wanted to use it. The Uniform Time Act of 1966 established consistent start and end dates. And the Energy Policy Act of 2005 added four more weeks to DST, and went into effect in 2007.

I no longer care about DST.
I'm retired. I get up when I wake up. No alarm clock. It's dark when I go to bed.
The anecdote used on the radio recently to describe DST was originated by an aboriginal ( according to the story ).
Only a white man would cut two inches off the bottom of a blanket and sew it to the top, thinking that would make a longer blanket.
