Toronto Mayor Ford tweeted, "Daylight Saving Time starts this evening, turn your clocks back and change batteries in smoke alarms."

To his credit he corrected that a few minutes later after people reminded him.

Don't tell me I have to search back in the archives of .gov to see who lobbied for this! The domain .gov is SO cumbersome that it might take me years.
One of the top lobbyists for DLST full time is Kingsford Charcoal. I was at a presentation they made on this awhile back and it was impressive .

I would think that any industry geared to the outdoor activity would be in favor of keeping DST indefinitely.

Sadly, I have not had occasion to use much charcoal in Months, and would love the opportunity.
