Perhaps the Yukon Government representative could also help us fill a couple of
holes in Yukon legislative time zone history and comments in:



✱ CO 1966-20 establishing Yukon (East) Standard Time (like PST) and Yukon (West)
Standard Time (like YST) is not available on the Yukon, CanLii, or other sites,
although it was revoked by CO 1967-59; from:

Standard Time and Time Zones in Canada; Thomson, Malcolm M.; JRASC, Vol. 64,
pp.129-162; June 1970; SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)
http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/1970JRASC..64..129T p.156:

"Yukon Territory Commissioner's Order 1967-59 Interpretation Ordinance

The Commissioner of the Yukon Territory, pursuant to the Interpretation
Ordinance, is pleased to and doth hereby order as follows:

1. Commissioner's Order 1966-20 dated at Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory on
27th January, 1966, is hereby revoked."

✱ OIC 1980/02 establishing Yukon DST is not available on the Yukon, CanLii, or
other sites, although it was revoked by OIC 1987/56; from:

Yukon Daylight Saving Time, YOIC 1987/56


Pursuant to section 36 of the Interpretation Act, the Commissioner in Executive
Council orders as follows:

1. In every year between
(a) two o'clock in the morning in the first Sunday in April, and
(b) two o'clock in the morning in the last Sunday in October,
Standard Time shall be reckoned as seven hours behind Greenwich Time and called
Yukon Daylight Saving Time.

2. Order-In-Council 1980/02 is hereby revoked."

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
