Blog Watching, Week Ending August 16, 2015
A rather diverse selection caught the attention of North Coast Review readers this week, covering a range of topics from port development, to housing to the work of a North Coast artist to name a few of the items of interest.
Our review of the first steps in what could be a Port related development for the South side of Kaien Island rocketed up the listings in the late stages of the week, followed by an update on the latest success for Tsimshian artist Kelli Clifton who is currently an artist in residence at the Santa Fe Art Institute in New Mexico.
A glimpse at a proposed housing development in Port Edward also attracted a wide audience this week, as did our account of the work of the Royal Canadian Air Force when called to a medical emergency on a Cruise ship south of Haida Gwaii.
Wrapping up the week, was our look at some employment prospects for local residents with work set to begin on the clean up of the Watson Island industrial site.
However, when it comes to the most read item of the week, the first indications of interest in a rail/truck intermodal yard proved to be the most popular posting for the last seven days.
