Blog Watching for Week Ending February 1, 2015

The start of the new City Council year is proving to be a bit of a learning curve for the Mayor and his new council, as a number of procedural matters, as well as the keeping of minutes have proven to be a topic of concern since the start of the month.

That focus on procedure at City Hall was one item that proved popular on the blog this week, as was our item relaying word that Council had called two Special Sessions for this past Wednesday.

As well as municipal government issues, the opening of a new sports bar in town proved to be a popular read, as was our account of the 5.0 magnitude earthquake on Haida Gwaii last week.

The issue of wolves making their presence known in the city also made for a hot topic for the week, a conversation that started off with our item related to a Wolf Warning issued by the RCMP on Tuesday.

Leading it all off this week however, a few concerns when it comes to the way that these early Council meetings for 2015 have started off.
