Lessons from Post-Prohibition

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

From Ontario's prohibition past to the current government's green light for municipalities to allow drinking in parks, the province has long struggled to find a balance between temperance and legalization. Dan Malleck, a professor and medical historian at Brock University, details that history in his book, "Try to Control Yourself: The Regulation of Public Drinking in Post-Prohibition Ontario." He joins Steve Paikin to discuss what lessons can be learned as the Ontario government looks to revamp the province's alcohol policy.
