Blog Watching, Week ending March 30, 2014
Included in the countdown, we will provide links to the articles in question, offering up with one click of the mouse, those items of the week that you may have missed.
This week, a 4.5 temblor on Haida Gwaii set off a Richter scale on the blog, with numerous views following Wednesday's mild quake.
From the shaking of the earth, the rest of the week's interest was for the most part fixated on civic politics which featured their own kind of quakes.
With the City's Financial planning, new court room developments for Watson Island and the city's tabling of a letter of support for a dry dock proposal all collecting interest through the week.
The final item in our top five, involves events with NWCC and their reversal on accepting proposed bursary program from Enbridge energy, with the college turning down the $15,000 opportunity this week.
Kicking off the review, our top item of the week:
