pike.git/lib/modules/Calendar.pmod/tzdata/northamerica:1789:   # subject of another article which she wrote in October 2010.   # http://www.creston.museum.bc.ca/index.php?module=comments&uop=view_comment&cm+id=56      # Here is a summary of the three clock change events in Creston's history:   # 1. 1884 or 1885: adoption of Mountain Standard Time (GMT-7)   # Exact date unknown   # 2. Oct 1916: switch to Pacific Standard Time (GMT-8)   # Exact date in October unknown; Sunday October 1 is a reasonable guess.   # 3. June 1918: switch to Pacific Daylight Time (GMT-7)   # Exact date in June unknown; Sunday June 2 is a reasonable guess. - # note#1: + # note 1:   # On Oct 27/1918 when daylight saving ended in the rest of Canada,   # Creston did not change its clocks. - # note#2: + # note 2:   # During WWII when the Federal Government legislated a mandatory clock change,   # Creston did not oblige. - # note#3: + # note 3:   # There is no guarantee that Creston will remain on Mountain Standard Time   # (UTC-7) forever.   # The subject was debated at least once this year by the town Council.   # http://www.bclocalnews.com/kootenay_rockies/crestonvalleyadvance/news/116760809.html      # During a period WWII, summer time (Daylight saying) was mandatory in Canada.   # In Creston, that was handled by shifting the area to PST (-8:00) then applying   # summer time to cause the offset to be -7:00, the same as it had been before   # the change. It can be argued that the timezone abbreviation during this   # period should be PDT rather than MST, but that doesn't seem important enough
