The Noble Experiment: Temperance and Prohibition
The demon rum? Or the cup that cheers? Canadians have been arguing about alcohol for at least two hundred years! The Noble Experiment: Temperance & Prohibition in Canada, explores the debate that affected Canadians on every level: from in their own homes to the national and international stages. It is a story of crime and smuggling, of action and danger, of humour and morality.
