Blog Watching, Week ending June 29, 2014

As part of a weekly feature on the blog, every Sunday we offer up this weeks recap of the top five items viewed over the course of the last seven days.

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 quake in the far western reach of Alaska attracted the most attention on the blog, with a large volume of traffic directed to the item in the hours following the quake.

The remainder of the information flow on the week involved plans moving forward on renovations to the Alaska Marine Highway Terminal location, the City's proposed motions for the fall UBCM meetings, the Port Authority donation to North Pacific Cannery Historical site and Councillor Anna Ashley's notice to seek a ban on any oil refinery development within municipal boundaries.
