Time to fall back.

Time to fall back Sunday

Daylight savings time ends early Sunday morning, meaning everyone gains an hour.

This Sunday is the first Sunday in November, which means daylight savings time ends and standard time begins at 2 a.m. PDT.

That means 2 a.m. miraculously turns into 1 a.m. at that time, so do not forget to set your clocks back before you go to bed Saturday night to take advantage of the extra hour!

The first Sunday in November and second Sunday in March have been the dates to change the clocks since 2006, when Canada and other jurisdictions followed the United States in extending daylight savings. Before that, Canada had observed daylight savings time from the first Sunday in April until the last Sunday in October.

There are exceptions to the rule, of course. The largest jurisdiction to eschew daylight savings is Saskatchewan, which is back on central time after spending the summer on mountain time.

B.C. has its outliers, too. Creston in the east Kootenays will be joining the Northeast, including Fort St. John, Charlie Lake, Taylor and Dawson Creek, in switching to mountain time until March after spending the rest of the year on the same clock as the rest of B.C.
