Lord don’t want me, Devil won't take me - Pansy May Stuttard
A Interesting bit of Tsawwassen history! In the 1920s the prohibition on liquor was in full swing in the US and unscrupulous Canadians sold liquor across the border to the thirsty Americans. In an isolated corner of Tsawwassen, BC right on the the border with Point Roberts, Wash stood a roughly built house and lodge. "A place of entertainment were you could get anything you wanted. You could bring a woman of if you didn't have one she'd get you one," said Provincial Police Constable Warren "Slim" Cameron. The roughneck woman who lived there and ran the operation was Pansy May Stuttard. She lived an interesting life, often on the wrong side of the law. After American prohibition ended in the 1930s, she moved up the road to where Fred Gingell Park is today. This is the story of "Pistol-packin' Pansy" and her survival in what was very much a man's world.
