Blog Watching, week ending September 28, 2014

Fall arrived on the North Coast earlier this week with sunny skies and warm temperatures, giving way however to the more traditional weather pattern by the time the weekend rolled around.

So, considering outdoor activities probably won't be high on your list today, settle in for our our weekly review.

Every Sunday we offer up a recap for the week 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 search for a Prince Rupert teenager and the announcement of his tragic death at Rainbow summit was the most viewed item of the last seven days, followed by our review of a highway fatality in the Terrace area which resulted in Highway 16 being closed for much of Thursday.

Developments from the UBCM convention in Whistler, as well as the bombshell announcement from the proponents of the Pacific NorthWest LNG project regarding concerns they have over the status of the project rounded out the top five items of the week.
