Blog Watching, Week ending April 19, 2015

Possible criminal activity, a boost to tourism opportunities and some decisions out of Prince Rupert City Council highlighted the week, with a number of our blog items finding a large audience as the week moved forward.

The item to catch the attention of most readers this week was our look at an early morning fire from last Sunday, an incident which has turned into an investigation into a possible case of arson,  and provided for a strong surge of readers through the week.

With tourism season almost upon us, our look at the review of a number of Prince Rupert and the North Coast's attractions in a provincial magazine this week found a number of readers looking it up.

And three items related to Monday's Council session found an interested readership this week, with some concerns from the Board of Education and a recent appearance at a Public Hearing over zoning at the old Canadian Freightways yard finding much interest from our readers.

Rounding out the top five this week was our look at the progress of a housing proposal on the east side and news from the City as to how residents can notify the City about concerns related to pot holes this spring.

Leading off the review for the last seven days, last Sunday mornings fire of the early hours and the investigation that has followed it.
