Blog Watching, Week ending November 15, 2015
with a string of correspondences related to the proposed LNG terminal development on Lelu Island making for the two most viewed items of the week.
The third LNG related item that broke into the top five listings notes the upcoming Open House for the WCC LNG Terminal at Tuck Inlet, as well as the start of the Draft review comment period that begins later this month.
Our item which reviewed the Thursday Canfisco announcement that outlined some major job losses for the North Coast also found a large audience this week, as many readers looked to find more background on the story coming from one of the city's main employers.
And another item from the Watson Island file attracted a large number of readers, who reviewed our item on Colonial Coal, which despite an ongoing court case with the City, continues to feature their Watson Island concept as part of its current website presentation for investors.
However, the lead off item which found the largest audience of the week, reviews the response from Metlakatla and other area First Nations on issues related to Lelu Island, with their suggestion that everyone should wait for the environmental review process related to the LNG proposal for the area to finish up its work, before any conclusions should be made when it comes to development on the island.
