Public Take Warning

Fuel was a scarce commodity early on in the war and Canadian households were asked to voluntarily reduce usage. Near the end of the war, more concerted efforts were taken to ensure a reduction in fuel use, and this announcement in The Review gives readers a glimpse: The public is asked to get all their required shopping done before noon, and any business owners who remain open receive a fine of $5000 or 6 months in prison for not complying.
