Image Preview
Ref Number
R-B10109
Item Date
1915


Under the leadership of Premier Scott, Saskatchewan was the first province to declare prohibition as a government policy.


The movement to ban alcohol had been around for some time, but it was not until 1915 that a law was passed restricting the sale of liquor in Saskatchewan. The following year all bar and club licenses were to be abolished and the province would control the wholesale side. Backyard stills were often found in rural Saskatchewan.
