Blog Watching, week ending October 25, 2015
The release of the comments culled from the Draft Application Information process for the Aurora LNG project topped the week's reading, with a number of residents of Dodge Cove, Prince Rupert and other areas of the province and Western Canada weighing in with their thoughts on the proposed Digby Island LNG terminal.
Readers also had a fair bit of interest into some developments from Lax Kw'alaams, as that community continued to make its position known when it comes to on any proposed development on Lelu Island and Flora Bank.
As well, our report on a lease arrangement between the City of Prince Rupert and Horizon North for a property on Wantage road also collected a number readers this week.
Breaking through all of the LNG and speculation on major development projects was the major political story of the week, with our review of the return to Ottawa of NDP MP Nathan Cullen also finding a significant number of views as the week came to an end.
However, the lead off item which found the largest audience of the week, proved to be the topic of LNG development for Digby Island and a review of the contributions that came from the recent public comment period.
