DMcG> It is a missed opportunity -
DMcG> they should have adopted Metric Time
Is anybody old enough to remember the April Fools joke that the CBC pulled, when they announced that then Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau, was *imposing* Metric Time on the nation? It was the same year that we changed most of our systems to metric. Emotions were already fully charged, magnified by the love/hate extremes we all felt towards Trudeau.
Half the nation went ballistic! For an April Fools prank it was, as they say, 'a good one'!
