Blog Watching, week ending May 3, 2015
Among the notes of interest, the latest Developments from City Council and a major story out of the Provincial courts.
As well, concerns over coast guard services and the nature of CBC radio service to the North Coast also attracted a large audience.
And even though it only was posted on Saturday, our review of a billion dollar proposal for Lax Kw'alaams related to possible support for LNG development for Lelu Island quickly attracted a large audience, one which continued to grow overnight.
However, leading off the review for the week just passed, the status of a missing session from the City's Council Video archive page.
