Thanks for these sources!
However, the two sources are not consistent with each other,
The "Vancouver Daily Province" syas that Kelowna and Penticton
do not observe DST in 1946 while the "Victoria Daily Times" says
they both switch back on 1946-09-28 at midnight.
It also strikes me as strange that the switch back from DST
should happen at midnight when DST started with the traditional
jump from 02 to 03.
While the piece in the "Vancouver Daily Province" has local
details, the article in the "Victoria Daily Times" seems to
be a syndicated text.
