The CBC reports that Pat Binns thinks “[r]esidents of P.E.I. support changing daylight time to stay in synch with the United States.” Mr. Binns knows this, the article says, because:

The P.E.I. government conducted an online poll to gauge how Islanders feel about changing daylight time, and Binns revealed that the results were overwhelmingly in favour of adopting the same system as the U.S.

Since when did we agree that it was okay for the government to make policy decisions based on the results of an “online poll?”

And where the hell was this online poll? Did anyone else local see it and respond to it?
