This site is dedicated to discussing issues in the history of the manufacture, regulation, and consumption of alcoholic beverages in Canada. It is written by a professional academic historian, so it can get a little cerebral and seem snooty at times, but really I’m just trained to write that way.
It is important to use history to inform current policy. For this reason, I often find myself speaking to media about the current state of drug and alcohol regulation in Canada.
If you have questions about policy, or history, or policy history, or the place of history in policy, don’t hesitate to ask.
Medical historian and jack-of-all-trades curmudgeon. I tend to ramble about politics, social incivility, and a self-centred culture more interested in buying the next cool ringtone or device than actively engaging in the sorts of discussions and issues that matter. The more opportunity we have to buy more stuff, the less concern there is, it seems, in politics, social justice and let’s face it, basic human decency, unless those things actually can save us money or get us more things to show how awesome we are through displaying our material wealth.
And I like to brew beer, make cheese, and put food in jars.
