They made the switch yesterday to Daylight Savings Time.  They are Canadians from coast to coast, not including Saskatchewan.    An official government poll in 2011 showed the majority are against the switch here.

Liberal MP Ralph Goodale stirred the pot on Twitter yesterday, writing, "Dear Canada, thinking of you as you weather the calamity of Daylight Saving Time.  Saskatchewan will be dozing soundly, while the scourge robs you of another hour of sleep tonight."

Close to 4000 Canadians clicked "Like" while over 600 re-Tweeted and about 400 commented, including those against and in favour of DST.

However, it is the personal and political pokes I found most enjoyable, like this reply from "Denny", who wrote "Just the way you work, dozing.  You're past your expiration date.  Resign."

Then "Lorne" says, "Ralph gets his extra sleep during question period."

And then "Cameron" writes, "No amount of zzz (sleep) will change the fact that you still have to wake up in Saskatchewan."  

Cameron, you might guess, is from Toronto.
