NARRATIVE

Ballot question: "Are you in favour of Pacific Standard time, including Pacific Daylight Saving time, as it is applicable now throughout the province?" The actual referendum only took place in four electoral districts and part of a fifth, all located in the northeast or southeast parts of the province. The purpose of the vote was to determine which areas favoured following Mountain Time rather than Pacific Time and whether to follow daylight saving time or not. All areas chose to follow Mountain Time.
