I wonder if there are plans to re-install the canon once the Laurel Point remediation project is complete. Does anyone know if the work being done will encompass the places of interest part of the David Foster walkway, and present a finished section of the walkway?

For Pete's sake! Are you still on about that silly Laurel Point thing. This thread was meant to be about the nine o'clock gun. Further to my post of about 25 November 2018, my parents told me it was a curfew warning and all little boys and girls must be off the street by then or a policeman would take them home in the bun wagon. Please can we get back to THAT gun and forget about Laurel Point?!

It seems odd to me too. I think some large portion of the population believes it gives us more light each day.

One way to work it better would be to make each daylight hour shorter. Say 45 minutes. Then make the night hours longer, about 90 minutes each. Now you'd have more hours of daylight.
I think you'd need to change your analog clocks hourly.

Maybe change Thursday to Friday and skip a day, making weeks six days? That way we can shorten winter by two months.
Know it all.

Why are politicians so hell bent on messing with things that do not present a problem but will ultimately annoy people?

Might be annoying for a cannon to go off at 8 am too.

This is a reasonable argument.
It just makes sense to stay at the same time all year. Changing our clocks and messing with our internal circadian rhythm twice a year is pathological.
As to the construction and other items, they can change their working hours, no?
It would be a bit silly though if we started changing work or school times twice a year.

Although, I have been switching back-and-forth for 55 years and my circadian rhythms have managed to survive.

Or when we switch back to Standard time in November we just leave it there permanently.
I like the light in the afternoon more than in the morning, dark mornings just let me sleep in longer.

You'll be able to sleep-in REALLY late in December/January if we move to year-round Daylight time.
