Blog Watching, Week ending, July 26, 2015

The LNG debate at the Legislature dominated our news flow of this week, with pretty well any item of note related to the LNG discussion and vote on the Agreement with Petronas finding its way to the top of our listings of the last five days.

Four of our five items that featured either the LNG discussion, or North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice's involvement (or lack of such on voting day) in the final days of debate found the most attention on the week.

Only Councillor Joy Thorkelson's concerns at Monday's council session about a proposed condo project and other land use issues in the city, stemmed the LNG tidal wave of information on the week.

When it comes to the most read item of the week, our Friday afternoon look at the timeline of Ms. Rice's trip to the Central Coast as the Final vote in the Legislature was taking place dominated the number of views.
