Blog Watching, Week ending November 16, 2014
If not for a train derailment west of Terrace, it would have been all politics capturing our top five entries of the week.
Our accounts of the final days of both the Mayoralty and City Council campaigns found a large audience, with four of the number of political items of the week tracking high numbers over the last seven days of our archive.
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.
Things were looking good for the political sweep this week, but then came word of an early morning incident on the rail line between Prince Rupert and Terrace, with the train derailment of Saturday morning knocking all the political talk down one peg.
So that's where we start the review off, with our account of the events on the railway.
