Blog Watching, week ending January 25, 2015

Cross border developments surrounding the now cancelled renovation project for the Alaska Marine Terminal dominated much of our news flow this week, with many of our items related to the situation finding a large audience.

Two of our items on the AMHS Terminal were among the top five listings this week, as North Coast residents took much interest in the fast moving events that were related to that project.

Other items that also found some traction this week included interest in a new video presentation from Pacific NorthWest LNG, the plans from West Jet to expand its service to the Terrace airport and our snapshot of Council developments after six weeks in office.

Leading it all off this week however, the view from one particular Alaska news service, which has its own solution for the Governor to consider.
