The switch to daylight saving time, scheduled for the night of Saturday to Sunday, will disrupt most Quebecers, reveals a poll Leger.
As a result of the change in spring time, nearly one in three Quebeckers saw a drop in energy levels, while 13% of the population felt more irritable.
Some 35% of respondents also say they have more difficulty getting out of bed.
After March 12, 58% of Quebeckers will require one day to a full week to adapt to the clock’s disruption. Among family members, this proportion will rise to 72%.
More than half of the parents would take advantage of this lost time to catch up on sleep.
The poll, unveiled Monday, was conducted online for Breadcrumb Canada Bread (TSX: CBY) from 6 to 10 February 2017, with a sample of 1000 adults. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.1%, 19 times out of 20.
