1924:   # daylight saving....   # http://www.nnsl.com/frames/newspapers/2006-11/nov13_06none.html    - # From Chris Walton (2007-03-14): - # Today I phoned the "hamlet office" to find out what Resolute was doing with - # its clocks. + # From Chris Walton (2011-03-21): + # Back in 2007 I initiated the creation of a new "zone file" for Resolute + # Bay. Resolute Bay is a small community located about 900km north of + # the Arctic Circle. The zone file was required because Resolute Bay had + # decided to use UTC-5 instead of UTC-6 for the winter of 2006-2007.   # - # The individual that answered the phone confirmed that the clocks did not - # move at the end of daylight saving on October 29/2006. He also told me that - # the clocks did not move this past weekend (March 11/2007).... + # According to new information which I received last week, Resolute Bay + # went back to using UTC-6 in the winter of 2007-2008... + # + # On March 11/2007 most of Canada went onto daylight saving. On March + # 14/2007 I phoned the Resolute Bay hamlet office to do a "time check." I + # talked to somebody that was both knowledgeable and helpful. I was able + # to confirm that Resolute Bay was still operating on UTC-5. It was + # explained to me that Resolute Bay had been on the Eastern Time zone + # (EST) in the winter, and was now back on the Central Time zone (CDT). + # i.e. the time zone had changed twice in the last year but the clocks + # had not moved. The residents had to know which time zone they were in + # so they could follow the correct TV schedule... + # + # On Nov 02/2008 most of Canada went onto standard time. On Nov 03/2008 I + # phoned the Resolute Bay hamlet office...[D]ue to the challenging nature + # of the phone call, I decided to seek out an alternate source of + # information. I found an e-mail address for somebody by the name of + # Stephanie Adams whose job was listed as "Inns North Support Officer for + # Arctic Co-operatives." I was under the impression that Stephanie lived + # and worked in Resolute Bay... + # + # On March 14/2011 I phoned the hamlet office again. I was told that + # Resolute Bay had been using Central Standard Time over the winter of + # 2010-2011 and that the clocks had therefore been moved one hour ahead + # on March 13/2011. The person I talked to was aware that Resolute Bay + # had previously experimented with Eastern Standard Time but he could not + # tell me when the practice had stopped. + # + # On March 17/2011 I searched the Web to find an e-mail address of + # somebody that might be able to tell me exactly when Resolute Bay went + # off Eastern Standard Time. I stumbled on the name "Aziz Kheraj." Aziz + # used to be the mayor of Resolute Bay and he apparently owns half the + # businesses including "South Camp Inn." This website has some info on + # Aziz: + # <a href="http://www.uphere.ca/node/493"> + # http://www.uphere.ca/node/493 + # </a> + # + # I sent Aziz an e-mail asking when Resolute Bay had stopped using + # Eastern Standard Time. + # + # Aziz responded quickly with this: "hi, The time was not changed for the + # 1 year only, the following year, the community went back to the old way + # of "spring ahead-fall behind" currently we are zulu plus 5 hrs and in + # the winter Zulu plus 6 hrs" + # + # This of course conflicted with everything I had ascertained in November 2008. + # + # I sent Aziz a copy of my 2008 e-mail exchange with Stephanie. Aziz + # responded with this: "Hi, Stephanie lives in Winnipeg. I live here, You + # may want to check with the weather office in Resolute Bay or do a + # search on the weather through Env. Canada. web site" + # + # If I had realized the Stephanie did not live in Resolute Bay I would + # never have contacted her. I now believe that all the information I + # obtained in November 2008 should be ignored... + # I apologize for reporting incorrect information in 2008.    - # From Chris Walton (2008-11-13): - # ...the residents of Resolute believe that they are changing "time zones" - # twice a year. In winter months, local time is qualified with "Eastern - # Time" which is really "Eastern Standard Time (UTC-5)". In summer - # months, local time is qualified with "Central Time" which is really - # "Central Daylight Time (UTC-5)"... -  +    # Rule NAME FROM TO TYPE IN ON AT SAVE LETTER/S   Rule NT_YK 1918 only - Apr 14 2:00 1:00 D   Rule NT_YK 1918 only - Oct 27 2:00 0 S
