Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 23, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thwifey, April 11, )t70 1HE IUHHIDGE HERAID Alberta And Stiskatchetean Only Exceptions Daylight Time For Majority Of Canadians Starts On April 26 THE CANADIAN PRESS For the majority of Canadian it's that time of year again when there's that moment of uncertainty: Do the hinds of the clock go forward or backward? The old rule of thumb, "Spring forward in the spring, tall backward in the applies. The clocks go forward one hour starting Sunday, April X. There they stay until the last Sunday in October, tbeKth. Virtually every community in all nrovinces except Alberta and Saskatchewan on' daylight time, some by provincial legislation. Aid this year there's uniformity in the return to standard time in the fall, Oct. 25 applying in all the affected provinces. Railroads and airlines will nave same schedule changes as in the past, but all provide their timetables now in terms of the local time applying.-In the Daylight Saving Time Act, enacted in prohibits municipalities iron going oo daylight time. They retain on Mountain Standard all year. AH, SOT. IN FAVOR Not all Albertans are in favor of it, .however. In that province, where in the north during summer months daylight by 4 a.m. and still that way at io p.m., rural residenU generally favor retention of standard time. In the cities, there is a move afoot to change things. Kifty-ohe per cent of those who voted in a plebiscite in IXI were against daylight time. Proposals for a change have come up again and a Calgary-based group, the Yes for Davlight Saving Society, claims 'it has obtained signatures on a petition calling for another plebiscite. The Social Credit government has said it will pose the question again hi the next general election, expected in 1971. Saskatchewan, where the between Mountain and Central time is set at the lOolh meridian ;of west longitude, which 'runs through a point about 15 miles east of Moose Jaw, represents a particular case. Until 1966 each municipality could decide whether to operate on Mountain 'Standard, Central Standard or daylight time in some confusion.' Then- the province established Ihe system by which all points east of 105' would si ay .on Cenlral Standard Time all' year; and paints to ths west could ooer-ale on Mountain Standard Time from the last Sunday in October to the last Sunday in April, then go to in the west, by vote, can stay on CST all year, but most revert to MST. in Oclober. Those which reverted to MST last year will put their clocks forward one hour on April wttch is the same as going on daylight time although the is not used. British Columbia and Manitoba are simple: All B.C. is on Pacific lime and all Manitoba on Central, and both go all-daylight. Ontario, in the Eastern time zone east of the head of the Lakes, is uniform for the first time in going to daylight time this year. The last holdout, the new citv of Thunder Bay, has decided to try in 1970-71-72. Previously, the cilies of Port Arthur and Fort William which became Thunder Bay remained on F.ST all year.' white during Ihe summer. Ontario points to their .west went .to which is the same on the clock. Windsor, Oni., another bold-out against daylight time until last year, will be on daylight time again in 1970, Detroit remains on FIST. One concession to Ihe American city is that Windsor nighlclubs, which get a lot of Detroit business, can operate on standard giving them an extra hour before closing. Quebec will be all EOT, while the Maritime the Atlantic lime zone, will be all ADT. Newfoundland will observe Davlight half an hour ahead of ADT. The Yukon and Northwest Territories don't need daylight time. During the summer months the sun is up most of the time anyway.

Oft Ban Oil Lake Erie Fishing COLUMBUS Onto Goy. James A. Rhodes lifted a baa on most commercial fishing in Lake Erie today and Attor- ney-General Pan! W. Brown an- nounced a suit against a firm accoied of dumping mercury iota' Lake Erie tributary.
