Yes, we need daylight saving all the time. No one should care if the sun gets up at 9 am in the winter.

I think the opposite. It is safer to have light during people's commutes. Standard time all the time would be better.

But hey, either way is alright. Just pick one.
Better to have light for the commute back when you're tired from work.

Jet: I see.

People aren't tired early in the morning?

I live right on the edge of the Eastern/Central time boundary.  Therefore, around the summer solstice it's still daylight at 10 pm.  I like that so I'm in favor of doing nothing to change that.  But I do agree daylight savings time is lame.

I like that too, travelling home late in high summer, especially on a train is just nice with a 9.25pm sunset with few other passengers.

I miss Whitehorse summers, where the sun sets after 11pm, and the sky never truly gets dark, just a long extended twilight.
