Manitobans will continue to change their clocks twice a year.

The Manitoba legislature defeated the Private Members bill, 34-5.

Dauphin MLA Brad Michaleski isn’t surprised the bill didn’t pass.

“It’s something where it’s good it was raised and it’s something we will continue to look at.”

The overall consensus Michaleski has heard is to do away with the time change and stay in the Daylight Savings Time, time zone.

He adds that Cliff Graydon, the MLA who created the bill wants to get rid of the Daylight Savings Time, time zone, which would make it the same time in Manitoba and Saskatchewan year round.

Michaleski noted there’s been a healthy discussion on the issue and there are many issues that complicate the idea including inter-provincial trade.
