19.3.4 DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME

WHEREAS Daylight saving time is a public health issue in many ways, leading to higher instances of heart attacks, traffic accidents and workplace accidents; and,

WHEREAS The one hour change in time does not help to conserve large amounts of energy; and,

WHEREAS Farmers were opposed to one hour change because the sun not the clock dictates their schedules; and, WHEREAS All Canadian Provinces use daylight saving time.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED That the NPF calls upon the Minister of Health and all levels of Government to cease the practice of changing the clocks for daylight saving time.
