Blog Watching, week ending October 11, 2015
With Environment Canada issuing a number of weather alerts and warnings in the late stages of the week, our item from Thursday offering up the first glimpse of what was expected to be coming the way of the North Coast dominated our views on the week.
The Prince Rupert Election forum also found a strong audience, with two of our reviews of the Wednesday night event of interest to our readers through the last few days.
Some reaction from the BC Government on a story out of Malaysia related to the Pacific NorthWest LNG project also found a wide audience, as did our look at some of the push back towards a string of positive media releases from the proponents of an oil terminal shipment facility for Grassy Point.
