Last spring, the NDP government introduced a bill that that would have gotten rid of Daylight Savings Time and put Alberta in the same time zone as Saskatchewan year-round.
Unfortunately for night owls, the Legislature voted no on that bill last week, meaning Albertans -- like the majority of Canada and the United States -- will continue to "spring forward, fall back" twice a year.
Tonight, like every fall, we'll get another hour's worth of sleep. At 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 5, we move the clocks back one hour to end Daylight Savings Time for 2017.
Fire departments throughout the country urge residents to take this opportunity to change the batteries in the smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. If your carbon monoxide detector is more than 10 years old, it should also be replaced.
