Many people like having extra daylight

Re: “B.C. might ditch time change,” March 8.

When I heard Premier John Horgan talking about not having daylight time in the future, I was really wondering why. Just because a number of people can’t handle a change in time for various reasons, why should we who like the extra daylight, especially in the summer months, have to give it up?

It seems that every time the Americans decide to change something, Canada seems to think we must follow what they are doing. It’s the old saying “when the United States sneezes, Canada catches the cold.” I thought we were supposed to be an independent country.

I am getting a little frustrated that our politicians keep making decisions without public input. It seems some people are not happy unless there is something to complain about.
