/R E P E A T -- Daylight Saving Time Starts Sunday/

    McGuinty Government Keeps Ontario Businesses In Sync

    TORONTO, March 7 /CNW/ - Ontario clocks will "spring ahead" this Sunday
morning under extended daylight saving time. Ontarians should turn their
clocks ahead one hour before going to bed on Saturday night and make sure all
computers and household devices show the right time on Sunday morning.
    The United States passed a law in 2005 that extended daylight saving time
by four weeks, starting in March 2007. To keep a smooth flow of goods and
services across the border, Ontario was among the first in Canada to match
daylight saving time schedules with our most important trading partner.


    "Our new schedule means more daylight for families and more productivity
for business," said Attorney General Chris Bentley.


    -  Under the new schedule, daylight saving time begins on the second
       Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.

    -  All of Canada has moved to the new schedule, except Saskatchewan,
       which does not use daylight saving time.
