kilometers southwest of Creighton. In addition, though not legally exempted, Creighton and neighbouring Denare Beach informally observe Daylight saving time in spite of a provincial prohibition on the official use of it (Time in Saskatchewan), thus keeping in sync with the community that is its primary public service resource. Flin Flon's radio and TV outlets are available in Creighton. In the early 20th century, rich gold, copper, and zinc deposits were discovered nearby in what would soon become the area of Flin Flon, Manitoba. Mining development in the area fueled a great deal of local infrastructure development, beginning with the extension of the rail line and Highway 10 from The Pas, Manitoba to Flin Flon, both of which passed through Cranberry Portage, a requirement of having large lakes lying North and South of the traditional portage. The '''Northern Region''' is a region (List of regions of Manitoba) in the Canadian (Canada) province of Manitoba. It is situated on the Canadian Shield and includes Manitoba's Hudson Bay coastline. The major economic activities are mining and tourism. The region is composed of four census divisions (Census divisions of Manitoba): 19 and 21–23 . The land area of the region is 438,491.51 km² (169,302.52 mi²), which encompasses 67% of Manitoba's total land area. The vast majority of the region is undeveloped wilderness. Its total population as of the 2001 census (Canada 2001 Census) was 82,427, which is only 6.7% of Manitoba's total population in the 2001 census (Canada 2001 Census). The largest municipality is the city of Thompson (Thompson, Manitoba). Other major population centers include the city of Flin Flon and the town of The Pas. Indian reserves comprise more than 49% of the region's population. There are 54 reserves with a total population of 40,572. The largest of these are Norway House 17 (Norway House 17, Manitoba) and Peguis 1B (Peguis 1B, Manitoba). In the United States, the National Institute on Drug Abuse fulfills that function. NIDA administers a contract with the University of Mississippi to grow a 1.5 acre (6,000 m²) crop of cannabis every other year; that supply comprises the only licit source of cannabis for medical and research purposes in the United States. wikipedia:Flin Flon, Manitoba

Although processing of any sulfide material (in this case zinc) usually emits large amounts of sulfur dioxide, the HBM&S plant uses a zinc pressure leaching process which greatly reduces emissions. 'Little change since Flin Flon's closure', ''Thompson Citizen'' November 24, 2010 Marijuana production Flin Flon gained international notoriety in 2002 when the Government of Canada awarded a four-year contract to a Saskatoon-based company for the production of medicinal marijuana. Prairie Plant Systems, based in Saskatoon, used an inactive underground copper zinc drift (drift mining) owned by the Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Company to produce approximately 400 kilograms of medicinal marijuana annually. The entire operation was situated several hundred metres under Flin Flon for security and climate control reasons. Since the original stock of marijuana seeds were obtained from Royal Canadian Mounted Police drug raids, there was some lack of consistency in the early crops of medicinal marijuana. After selective use of seeds from the first crop, subsequent generations have shown to have a more consistent quality. In 2009, Prairie Plant Systems discontinued operation at the mine due to the ending of their lease and the uncertainty regarding the pending closure of the Trout Lake mine.
