Blog Watching, week ending April 6, 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, our foolishness of the first day of April proved to be the most popular item on the blog, with many of our readers seeking to learn more about the mysterious developments of the waterfront.
That was followed by some background into an ongoing police investigation on the east side of the city, as well as word of the details from a coroners report from an incident on the waterfront in 2013.
City issues also took up two spots of the top five this week, with interest high in both our latest item on Watson Island and the controversy over taxation payments from the Port Corporation to the City of Prince Rupert.
