Blog Watching, Week Ending September 7, 2014
As part of a weekly review on the blog, every Sunday we offer up the 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, far and away the latest advertising from the Mayor for the upcoming Municipal election campaign proved to be the most popular item of the week.
Followed by a pair of items on some progress when it comes to LNG development in the region.
Our item on the current state of the labour dispute between the BCTF and the Provincial Government also attracted a fairly healthy audience, with returning numbers to check back in with our revolving update on the latest issues.
While the top five was rounded out by what is always a popular topic, City Council's thoughts on developments at CityWest, with council this time expressing their anger and disappointment at a plan to charge CityWest users who wish to retain a paper billing option.
