This week, a major fire on the city's east side topped our counter for the week, as a larger volume of readers reviewed our notes on the fire itself and then the follow up launch of the RCMP investigation into the cause of the fire.
The developments in the territory of the Gitxsan also proved to be of interest to our readers this week, as they caught up to events through two articles which we offered up this week.
