Blog Watching Week ending November 23, 2014
A few controversial comments on the prospects of LNG for the North Coast from the NDP's leader and a number of local interest items, ranging from issues related to municipal politics to the weather highlight the week's most popular items for the last seven days.
Along the way through the week readers found our notes on the proposed development for Lot 444 and the City's upcoming Public information session of some interest, as they did our review of the ongoing interest from the southern media when it comes to learning more about the new Mayor elect of Prince Rupert.
Among the other items of note on the week, Watson Island was once again is on the radar this week, with an announcement from the Vancouver Courts regarding the ongoing legal proceedings.
It being winter driving season, our first major advisory of earlier this week outlining some poor travel conditions inland also found an interested audience.
But by far, the most intriguing story for our readers over the last seven days involves the NDP leader's recent trip through the Northwest, as well as our look in at how the Skeena MLA is proving to be an effective advocate for his riding and potential economic development.
So that's where we start the review off, with our account of Mr. Horgan's impressions and Mr. Austin's intercessions.
