# Dawson Creek uses MST. Much of east BC is like Edmonton.
# Matthews and Vincent (1998) write that Creston is like Dawson Creek.

+# It seems though that (re: Creston) is not entirely correct:
+
+# From Chris Walton (2011-12-01):
+# There are two areas within the Canadian province of British Columbia
+# that do not currently observe daylight saving:
+# a) The Creston Valley (includes the town of Creston and surrounding area)
+# b) The eastern half of the Peace River Regional District
+# (includes the cities of Dawson Creek and Fort St. John)
+
+# Earlier this year I stumbled across a detailed article about the time
+# keeping history of Creston; it was written by Tammy Hardwick who is the
+# manager of the Creston & District Museum. The article was written in May
2009.
+# <a href="http://www.ilovecreston.com/?p=articles&t=spec&ar=260";>
+# http://www.ilovecreston.com/?p=articles&t=spec&ar=260
+# </a>
+# According to the article, Creston has not changed its clocks since June 1918.
+# i.e. Creston has been stuck on UTC-7 for 93 years.
+# Dawson Creek, on the other hand, changed its clocks as recently as April
1972.
+
+# Unfortunately the exact date for the time change in June 1918 remains
+# unknown and will be difficult to ascertain. I e-mailed Tammy a few months
+# ago to ask if Sunday June 2 was a reasonable guess. She said it was just
+# as plausible as any other date (in June). She also said that after writing
the
+# article she had discovered another time change in 1916; this is the subject
+# of another article which she wrote in October 2010.

+# 1. 1884 or 1885: adoption of Mountain Standard Time (GMT-7)
+# Exact date unknown
+# 2. Oct 1916: switch to Pacific Standard Time (GMT-8)
+# Exact date in October unknown; Sunday October 1 is a reasonable guess.
+# 3. June 1918: switch to Pacific Daylight Time (GMT-7)
+# Exact date in June unknown; Sunday June 2 is a reasonable guess.
+# note#1:
+# On Oct 27/1918 when daylight saving ended in the rest of Canada,
+# Creston did not change its clocks.
+# note#2:
+# During WWII when the Federal Government legislated a mandatory clock change,
+# Creston did not oblige.

+# There is no guarantee that Creston will remain on Mountain Standard Time
+# (UTC-7) forever.

+# During a period WWII, summer time (Daylight saying) was mandatory in Canada.
+# In Creston, that was handled by shifting the area to PST (-8:00) then
applying
+# summer time to cause the offset to be -7:00, the same as it had been before
+# the change. It can be argued that the timezone abbreviation during this
+# period should be PDT rather than MST, but that doesn't seem important enough

# August, not in October as they have since 1968. This is a pilot plan
# which will be reevaluated in 2012.

+# From Mauricio Parada (2012-02-22), translated by Glenn Eychaner (2012-02-23):
+# As stated in the website of the Chilean Energy Ministry
+#
http://www.minenergia.cl/ministerio/noticias/generales/gobierno-anuncia-fechas-de-cambio-de.html
+# The Chilean Government has decided to postpone the entrance into winter time
+# (to leave DST) from March 11 2012 to April 28th 2012. The decision has not
+# been yet formalized but it will within the next days.
+# Quote from the website communication:
+#
+# 6. For the year 2012, the dates of entry into winter time will be as follows:
+# a. Saturday April 28, 2012, clocks should go back 60 minutes; that is, at
+# 23:59:59, instead of passing to 0:00, the time should be adjusted to be 23:00
+# of the same day.
+# b. Saturday, September 1, 2012, clocks should go forward 60 minutes; that is,
+# at 23:59:59, instead of passing to 0:00, the time should be adjusted to be
+# 01:00 on September 2.
+#
+# Note that...this is yet another "temporary" change that will be reevaluated
+# AGAIN in 2013.
+
+# NOTE: ChileAQ rules for Antarctic bases are stored separately in the
+# 'antarctica' file.
