Residents of Newfoundland and Labrador are reminded that Daylight Savings Time comes into effect overnight.

At 2 a.m. clocks should be moved ahead one hour — essentially eliminating an hour from the day. While it will prolong the morning darkness, it extends the daylight at day's end.

When adjusting clocks, residents are encouraged to take the opportunity to check the batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

    The correct term is "Daylight Saving Time" not "... Savings ...". We are saving daylight, not savings daylight.
