Blog Watching, Week ending August 9, 2015
Politics, Federal, provincial and municipal dominates the list of five for this week, with only a look at a popular Prince Rupert summer festival sneaking its way into the mix over the last seven days.
From the federal election campaign that began one week ago, to the first comments from MLA Jennifer Rice on developments at the Banks Island mining site, the two senior levels of government captured their fair share of attention from the items of the week.
On the municipal scene, the City's ongoing quest to add to the civic workforce and a much anticipated announcement on the clean up of the Watson Island site attracted a large volume of readers over the week.
Breaking up the grip of the politicians this week, was our preview of the popular comedy/drama festival known as Udder Fest which wraps up its five day run in the city later this afternoon.
However, when it comes to the most read item of the week, our archive that launches our coverage of the eleven week campaign to elect the Federal Government captured the most attention this week.
