Local City Councillor and historian Ken Pawlachuk is presenting a Heritage Walking Tour of Flin Flon as part of Culture Days Saturday. He says the tour is open to anyone interested and starts at Pioneer Square on Main Street. He explains he goes over to the copper mural that’s there and then over to the copper bar and tells them a few stories about HBM&S and how we came to where we are. He goes to the Community Hall and talks about our old red light district and stuff like that and then over to the open pit and talks about some of the challenges they had with processing the ore and if he can get into the Whitney Forum a lot of times that’s where he’ll take his tour and if they have time he’ll go across the road behind the Legion and they’ll go on the old sewer boxes there.
The walk start at 2 o’clock at Pioneer Square and will take about an hour and a half. You are asked to wear a mask, practice physical distancing and contact information will be gathered for contact tracing.
