[TZInfo-users] Canberra- EDT vs EST

Can you show a snippet of code to demonstrate this?

I ask because I was working with this kind of thing and found a lot of 
ways to do
things that did not generate an error and did not return anything useful.

I think if you run the same demo code on a time 6 months from now it will
also show EST.

I ended up using dst? (or is it is_dst?) as part of time_period to 
figure out what to display
and then using my own function to generate that string
