Prohibition was finally abolished in Québec following a pan-Québec referendum in 1919. Brome County was one of seven to vote against abolition. Ironically, that same year, the United States passed the Volstead Act, which decreed that trade in alcohol was now forbidden throughout the United States. It was a triumph for temperance movements that had been campaigning for such a ban for more than half a century.
