Blog watching, week ending November 1, 2015
This week was no different, with four of our five stories in the Top Five placements having some relation to the LNG files.
Readers found the news of permit approval for the proposed Trans Canada LNG pipeline from Northeast Alberta to the North Coast of some interest, with a large volume of readers exploring it further since its posting of Tuesday.
Some comments from Prince Rupert Mayor Lee Brain to CFTK TV 7 on the theme of Pacific NorthWest LNG also drew a large audience, as did our look at the recent LNGinBC conference in Vancouver and reports that some Prince Rupert council members took in the annual event.
A story that only debuted on the blog in the mid-afternoon of yesterday quickly found an audience, with a growing number of readers looking for more information on the Science Report regarding Lelu Island and Flora Bank, a document which was released Friday by the Lax Kw'alaams First Nation.
And the prospect of a national food chain making its preparations for a new Prince Rupert location also found a wide audience, as readers gobbled up our story on Pizza Hut as though it were the last piece of pizza at a sports banquet.
However, the lead off item which found the largest audience of the week, proved to be the topic of Trans Canada's proposed LNG pipeline and the significant permit approval received this week by the company.
