Blog Watching, Week ending May 11, 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, items of provincial and municipal politics dominated our top five items of review.
With our top item of the week being the BC Liberal Government's moves to continue to deflect the ongoing questions of the NDP , which is seeking a shuttle bus for the isolated communities of Highway 16.
From there, the first political ad for the November municipal election caught the attention of our readers, as Mayor Jack Mussallem provided the first of his talking points in seeking re-election.
A review of MLA Robin Austin's inquiries on aquaculture, a look at the North Central Local Government Association in Convention and the successful opening weekend for the North Pacific Cannery Historical site all round out the top five of the week.
