Blog Watching, Week ending June 21, 2015

A string of car fires have been keeping both Prince Rupert RCMP and Fire Rescue busy over the last seven days, incidents which have made any news on the status of the investigation of keen interest to local residents.

Over the last seven days two of our items related to the fires have found large audiences seeking out more background on the case files currently under investigation by the RCMP.

Well behind the count, but still of some interest to our readers this week were items related to the Prince Rupert Port Authority Annual Public Meeting, as well as a new feature from the Ministry of Transportation looking back into time on B. C.'s roads.

School District 52's plans to expand its instruction of Sm'algyax this fall also attracted a large audience, as did our notes on the positive news for an LNG terminal project in Kitimat.

However, by far the story that engaged the most interest through the week, the growing list of car fires that now have been reported on both the east and west side of the city.

Kootenay Avenue latest location related to ongoing vehicle arsons  -- Our notes on the latest in a string of vehicle fires in the city found a large audience this week, with Friday's accounts of the Kootenay Avenue fire a popular read, as well our earlier post of Monday related to a number of fires from Seafest weekend also was of much interest to our readers.   (posted June 19, 2015)
