Blog Watching, Week ending October 26, 2014
Municipal politics and LNG developments provide for the topics for the bulk of the views to the blog over the last seven days.
Those twin themes over the week highlight the focus that the LNG industry is providing for many in the region including Prince Rupert City Council, while at the same at the relationship between the City and the Province provides for an interesting backdrop to the municipal election campaign.
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, LNG issues dominated the news flow for the blog, with the CBC's LNG Forum providing for two of our top five items. On the local political scene, LNG took more some space, with word that the City of Prince Rupert has hired local Oceanographer Dr. Barb Faggetter to conduct an LNG study found a fair bit of interest.
Two other items that caught the eye of our readers this week, included our piece featuring a look at a missing city on Transportation Minister Todd Stones travel itinerary and the announcement of a change at the top for one of the North Coasts LNG companies.
