The information I have found on Saskatchewan Daylight Time is this:
1962-1971 Variable (each locality may have done something different)
but it seems to be last Sunday in April to last Sunday
in October (September in 1960-1)
1972-present? Observed in entire province except in the far-eastern
part (that part is on Central Standard time all year)
The western part is on the last Sunday in April to
last Sunday in October schedule
I don't know where the machine 'skorpio' is but I infer that it is in
the Eastern part of Saskatchewan. Does anyone have access to an official
publication of Canada that describes DST? Does such a publication exist?
