Should the Tweed have daylight savings?

With the first Sunday of October just around the corner, the age-old debate over daylight savings has again reared its ugly head.

And for those living near the border, the debate is much more than a conversation that comes up every year, it's personal.

For those who need to work or shop across the border, they either love or loathe the extra hour of afternoon sunshine that daylight savings offers.

In April, Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate called for a referendum on daylight savings in Queensland, citing continued problems with residents living in the border towns of Coolangatta and Tweed Heads.
