| Weird. I just followed the URL you gave, which led me to
You want Bill175-1B.pdf
| and Part 2 s. 4 (page 3) specifies December 1, not December 3. Surely
| December 3 (a Sunday) is right, but it's a bit disconcerting that the
| "official" reference gets it wrong.
The newer one has Dec 3.
| The "official" reference also says that the March transitions are at 3
| a.m. local time (2 a.m. standard time). I assume this is right, as
| it's the Australian tradition.
| Since the voters of Western Australia may well overturn this change,
Yes, but not until sometime in 2009 (sometime between May and September)
| we'll have to revisit it in February or March.
Not next year.
