Now that the annual “Spring forward, Fall back” time change is close at hand on November 6th, my sources in Ottawa have passed on the current Federal government's latest proposed change to the metric system.

Apparently the powers that be in Ottawa have devised a clever plan to convert the entire country to “metric time” by December 31st, 2017. With the new 10-hour metric clock face instead of the familiar 12-hour clock that we are used to, the new time system will use 100 seconds to make one minute instead of 60, 100 minutes instead of 60 to make an hour, and 20 hours instead of 24 to make one day. Everything will be based on the power of 10 as happens with everything in the metric system. What was referred to as “seconds” will be called called millidays, “minutes” will turn into centidays, and hours will take on the new name decidays.
