Actually, now I see that on the solstice the difference between our sunset and the sunset in Halifax is only 1 minute. Maybe our half hour time zone is actually useful. Get it together, St. Pierre, join the master race time zone.
The St. Pierre time zone is an hour later than it should be because it brings them closer in time to France, so it's a matter of convenience I expect. However, both NL and SPM are squarely within the geographic zone of Atlantic time, so there is really no need for any such nonsense to exist.
