Blog Watching, week ending December 27, 2015
As it has for much of 2015 items related to proposed LNG developments in the region top our rankings, this time from an item of this week related to the proposed LNG terminal site at Lelu Island.
Port Development also made for some reading for this years final list, with a look at the growing concern over available land for development in Vancouver, something which could provide another window of opportunity for further Port Development in Prince Rupert.
The Rainmakers continue to claim some space to the blog, this time around with a look at the annual Alumni Tournament, while an item related to Prince Rupert City Hall also proved popular this week.
The end of the year is the time for lists and for Prince Rupert some improvement was found in the annual notes of BC Business magazine when it comes to employment opportunities in BC.
However, as it was last week, LNG topped the listings over the last seven days, as an error in a recently delivered information mailer from Pacific NorthWest LNG proved to be a popular discussion point this past week.
