        Description

        tzdata2005r was released on 27 Dec 2005. This 2005r release includes DST rule changes for Canada as follows.

        # CBC News reported that Ontario and Manitoba have announced plans to
        # follow the US change, and that Nova Scotia is considering it; see
        # <http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/daylightsavingtime/> (2005-10-21).
        # CBC news also reported that Prince Edward Island is the first
        # province in Atlantic Canada to follow the US change, and that Quebec
        # had agreed; see <http://www.cbc.ca/pei/story/pe_daylight_20051207.html>
        # (2005-12-07).
        #
        # To reflect all this, the Canada and Winn rules have been adjusted to
        # agree with the 2007 US change. This means we assume most of Canada
        # will fall into line. However, Alberta, British Columbia,
        # Newfoundland, Northwest Territories, and Yukon already have separate
        # rules in our database, so for now we'll leave them alone, which
        # means that we currently assume these regions will not change their
        # rules and will disagree with the US starting in 2007. This
        # assumption is probably incorrect, with the possible exception of
        # Newfoundland. We plan to adjust the Edm, Vanc, StJohns, and NT_YK
        # rules as the corresponding provinces make their announcements.
