KAMLOOPS — Don't forget to set your clocks back an hour tonight.

Daylight Saving Time comes to an end as of 2 a.m. Sunday when clocks will fall back an hour giving many a much-needed extra hour of sleep.

The change means mornings will be bright an hour earlier and darkness will set in earlier in the evening.

Kamloops residents Bob Dieno and Tara Holmes have advocated to end the time change for years.

They started a 'Stop the Time Change' petition in 2015 where they collected more than 26-thousand signatures of support.

A second petition was started earlier this year and collected close to five-thousand signatures.

Online it states "The primary goal of Daylight Saving Time is to conserve energy but whether DST actually saves energy is unclear and there are many contradictory studies. There are, however, even more studies that tell us that the change itself can cause accidents, injuries and even deaths."

CFJC reached out for an update on the petition but didn't hear back.
