A year of anticipation best describes the waning hours of 2015
Making use of our Blog Watching feature and a quick scan of our statistical review over the last 365 days to determine those stories which most resonated with regular readers of the North Coast Review through 2015.
Not surprisingly among the leading areas of interest of the year are developments with the proposed LNG industry on the North Coast, while readers also found a wide ranging interest in our items of note related to Municipal government in Prince Rupert.
It was a year that for the most part found us in a holding pattern in many areas for the region, whether it be the plans of LNG Proponents, or housing issues at City council, to name a few of the current items of note that continue to make for the debate around the region.
The flip of the calendar would seem set to deliver some form of resolution to many of the topics that dominated the news cycle since January.
And while there is still some uncertainty when it comes to number of the key topics of the region, one area of importance to the region, that being port development plans seem to be making some important progress. With expansion concepts for Fairview Terminal and other Port related facilities to be moved forward in the year ahead.
Considering the large amount of interest on those themes, you can explore the past items of 2015 further from our archive pages dedicated to those key areas.
