Blog Watching: Week ending August 13, 2017

North Coast residents continue to devour items related to the recently cancelled Pacific NorthWest LNG project, with a number of our items on energy issues grabbing a large share of our readership views on the week.

Two of our five most read items were related to the PNW LNG project, while a third focused on the approach that the new NDP government is taking on a energy issues in the province.

Civic issues also carved out some time for readers of the blog, with our review of some growing discontent at the pace of progress on the Mckay Street Park project attracting a large number of readers.
