Blog Watching, week ending November 2, 2014
Municipal politics and LNG developments once again dominated the reading list for those reviewing our items over the last seven days.
As they did last week, those twin themes highlighted the interest that local residents have in the progress or fate of the numerous LNG project proposed for the North Coast, as well as the interest that the municipal election campaign is finally starting to generate.
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, the prospect of learning more about the issues and concerns that those seeking a seat on City Council proved to be popular, as many took the time to read our preview of Tuesday's council forum.
Likewise, a large volume of readers found some interest in the latest campaign points from incumbent Mayor Jack Mussallem.
CityWest returned as a theme of news, with readers finding some interest in our item related to the City's latest moves related to the CityWest Board of Directors.
And it was a very interesting week on the LNG story for the region, with word of the BG Group's pause in development plans for their Ridley Island project and more news on the Pacific NorthWest LNG project perhaps to be deliver on November 11th, both of our items on LNG found a large audience this week.
