Blog Watching week ending June 14, 2015

LNG developments competed with social issues this week, with the plan from the City to create a rainbow coloured crosswalk for the Cow Bay area finally grabbing the most attention on the news listings over the last seven days.

LNG issues held their own int he number count as well however, with the latest news from the Pacific NorthWest LNG file finding a large audience eager to learn more about their Conditional Investment decisions.

Likewise, interest was high in an update from Aurora LNG which also provided for good returns on our daily count.

Also catching the attention of our readers on the week, the strange case of golf balls raining down on the BC Ferry loading area and parking lot, as well as a desire to learn more about the plans from Northwest Community college as they hire on a new VP and look to increase enrolment in the fall.

However, by far the story that engaged the most interest and provided for a bit of commentary along the way over the last seven days, was the plan to create a Rainbow coloured crosswalk in the Cow Bay district of the City.
