Canada Time zones
The lack of any official time structure often caused problems for departure and arrival times for his trains, especially with a country as large as Canada. Flemming's first proposal of 24 time zones worldwide was met with wide opposition and criticism. Eventually, Flemming's idea of standard time was approved. It went into effect on January 1, 1885.
Canada is divided into six different time zones, listed below from east to west.
1. Newfoundland (Newfoundland) +1:30
2. Atlantic (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, Labrador) +1:00
3. Eastern Standard Time (Quebec, Ontario)
4. Central (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Nunavut) - 1:00
5. Mountain (Alberta and Northwest Territories) - 2:00
6. Pacific (British Columbia and Yukon) - 3:00
