Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

Doyou have any ex­cit­ing or un­usual sto­ries to tell about pro­hi­bi­tion or smug­gling that took place in the re­gion of Stanstead and Derby Line be­tween 1919 and 1933? We are presently look­ing for in­ter­est­ing facts, sto­ries and ob­jects from this pe­riod in or­der to cre­ate a tourist project that will fo­cus on a time pe­riod when some peo­ple made prof­its through their in­ge­nu­ity, re­gard­less of the ef­forts of bor­der guards and the con­sci­en­tious.

We prom­ise to keep it all confidential to pro­tect the iden­tity of your par­ents and friends!

For more in­for­ma­tion about this new project please contact Stanstead’s de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer, Joanne La­je­unesse McKay, at 819 876-5215 or by email at jlm­ckay@cld­mem­phrem­a­gog.com.
