What time zone is British Columbia in?

Does British Columbia observe Daylight Saving Time?
Like most provinces in Canada, Daylight Saving Time is observed in British Columbia, where the time is shifted forward by 1 hour, resulting in a 7-hour difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-7).
After the Summer months the time is shifted back by 1 hour resulting in the normal 8 hours difference to GMT.
There is at least one large agricultural region (Creston Valley) that does NOT observe Daylight Saving Time.
