Blog Watching Week ending August 22, 2015
We're getting a head start on a late summer getaway today, so a bit of housecleaning of the weekend features one day early.
A pair of LNG related developments with the Aurora Terminal Project proposed for Digby Island took the top two spots in this weeks review of our top five items.
As the company makes plans for some exploratory work on the Site on Digby in the near future, as well as announcing that an Open House is planned for September 23rd.
Our notes on a tragic workplace incident at the Wainwright Marine yard also found a wide audience over the last two days since it was posted.
The arrival of another major shipping line to Fairvew Terminals made some waves this week as well, as did our review of a local member of the Prince Rupert Marine Rescue Service making her plans for a trek to Germany in September, set to take part in an international exercise.
However, when it comes to the most read item of the week, some signs of momentum for the Aurora LNG project on Digby Island dominated our review of the week just passed.
