While changing your clock twice a year has become normal for Ontarians, it hasn't always been a thing. \nIn fact, Ontario's daylight saving time was first introduced over 100 years ago in the small city of Port Arthur. \nDespite the fact that the practice is only a century old, this small spot was the first place to actually introduce daylight saving across the entire globe. \nEditor's Choice: Netflix Canada Just Raised Its Monthly Prices But One Level Remains Unchanged\n\nWhere did the idea of Ontario daylight saving come from?\nWay back in 1908, a local businessman from Port Arthur, now known as Thunder Bay, petitioned the town's council to adjust the clocks to Eastern Time during summer months.\nAccording to Nothern Ontario Travel, the hope was that the move would let children and outdoor enthusiasts enjoy an extra hour of sunshine.\nThe groundbreaking idea was a smash hit and the town began turning its clocks ahead an hour from June to September.\nIt wasn't long before, the neighbouring Fort William adopted the practice.\nSix years later Kenora began observing daylight saving time and from there it only continued to grow.\n\nHow was daylight saving time originally implemented? \nAs you can imagine there were a few hiccups when the time shift was first implemented.\nFor example, Keewatin, a town located just 10 minutes away from Kenora, initially decided not to adopt the practice.\nA move that made things majorly confusing for workers who travelled between the two towns.\nA local ferry service was forced to incorporate two different time schedules to accommodate the town's battling time zones.\nIn 1918, the Government of Canada decided to adopt the practice nationwide, however, some smaller towns still decided they didn't want to participate. \n\nHow long will Ontario's daylight saving time last? \nYou may not need to turn your clocks back in the future. \nA bill aiming to end daylight saving time in the province for good was pushed forth on October 7, 2020, by Ottawa West—Nepean MPP Jeremy Roberts.\nBill 214, the Time Amendment Act, hopes to flip the script by making what has currently been considered as daylight saving time into the standard time year-round.\nThe proposal would officially relieve residents of the duty of changing their clocks twice a year.
