IMBIBE: A LECTURE SERIES CROSSING THE LINE: HOW, WHERE AND WHEN TO DRINK IN NIAGARA AFTER PROHIBITION

When prohibition ended in Ontario in 1927, it continued across the river in the United States and Americans flocked to Niagara.   When US prohibition ended in 1933, it was replaced by a looser licensing regime than in Ontario, and Canadians flocked to the US.  How did Niagarans react?

Dan Malleck is a professor in the Department of Health Sciences and the director of Brock’s Centre for Canadian Studies. He is an internationally recognized expert in drug and alcohol regulation and prohibition. Has spoken to audiences in Canada, the United States, Europe, and Asia about the challenges of regulating substances that are considered socially problematic, including cannabis, liquor, opiates, and cocaine.
