A Memorial Walk Will Take Place Saturday to Remember the Late Flora Ballantyne.



Her nephew George Morin says Flora came to live in Flin Flon from Sandy Bay when she was 20.  He says she took care of him in Flin Flon until he moved to Regina when in late fall 1979 and again in December his mother called to says Aunt Flora was missing.  He explains the next call he got in April of 1980 and she says they found your Aunty deceased by the railroad tracks in Channing and it’s unknown how she would end up there as she was the type of person that never went further than downtown Flin Flon and she would usually come there during the week so it was uncharacteristic of her to end up in Channing by the railroad.  He says it’s a suspicious death and there was never a conclusion and they were never notified as to what happened by the RCMP.


Morin says he testified at the National Inquiry on behalf of his Aunty.  Anyone who remembers Flora Ballantyne is invited to join the walk beginning a 4 Saturday afternoon at Super K, down Main Street and then over to the Friendship Center for a traditional ceremony called a Ghost Feast.
