It’s beginning to look a lot like 1916
uniter.ca

In April of 2018, I wrote a historical article for The Uniter examining the prohibition era in Winnipeg. From 1916 to 1921, the sale and consumption of alcohol was prohibited in Manitoba. Similar legislation was passed throughout Canada and the United States in the 1910s and ’20s, motivated by fears and misconceptions about alcoholism.
