Picture this: In 1898, at midnight, a police constable is running for his life down the Mississaga Street hill chased by a drunken mob threatening to lynch him. That report caught my eye in an old newspaper and I just had to look into it. Turns out there is a fascinating backstory that includes a national plebiscite on prohibition, a brutal do-it-yourself abortion and three separate court cases that ruined several lives.
