Blog Watching, week ending July 19, 2015

The LNG debate at the Legislature loomed large on the week's news review, with interest in the discussion points regarding the Pacific NorthWest LNG agreement with the province attracting a wide number of readers through the week.

It's not surprising to note the attention given to the most talked about industrial project in the region over the last few years and with Northwest MLA's set to join in on the discussion, our blog items on the debate dominated the listings of the week.

Four of our five most read items featured some form of review on the LNG discussions in Victoria, with only the salmon fishery and the Department of Fisheries observations on the season to this point, able to elbow some space among the weeks items among the most popular.

When it comes to the most read item of the week, by a significant margin, the review of North Coast MLA  Jennifer Rice's Monday evening statement to the Legislature found the largest audience of the week.
