Grandview 19th April 1920

Vancouver World, 19200419, p.17


Prohibition began in BC in October 1917 after what many consider a rigged vote in favour the previous year. Before it was repealed by a massive majority in October 1920, the courts were obliged to sort out any number of irregular goings on, both by police and moonshiners.

This clipping reveals an odd incident. There had been another whiskey seizure at Ferrara Court in February 1920 but so far as I can tell, there was no connection to the incident related here. I have searched to find either a beginning or end to this story but without luck, and so it has to stand by itself.
