A Major Player in the Development of the Flin Flon Area Has Received Recognition.

 

 

A memorial was unveiled yesterday in the Neighbors of the North Park at the south end of Main Street to honor David Collins.The Committee’s Gerry Clark explains a hundred years ago a native trapper by the name of David Collins showed the ore body that’s now the Flin Flon mine to Tom Creighton and he and his group staked it and David was told he could expect to get his fair share eventually but he got nothing and he was largely forgotten.

             

The memorial was unveiled by Mayor Cal Huntley and Collins’ Great Great Granddaughter Margaret Head Steppan who represented the six generations of the Collins family introducing those who were able to attend the ceremony while Great Great Granddaughter Kelly Blouin told the story of Collins, the pride it brings to the family and the struggle for recognition.
