Blog watching, week ending December 6, 2015
Transportation notes also dominated the most read items of the week, with a pair of items related to the Alaska Marine Highway System and more fallout from the suspension of service by Hawkair to Prince Rupert making for a fair amount of the news coverage this week.
While more background on the recent decision to close the canning lines at the Canadian Fish Plant in Prince Rupert also made for a popular topic for the week.
However, the lead off item which found the largest audience of the last seven days, was focused on a pair of Open Houses hosted by Nexen Energy with updates for the community on their proposed LNG Terminal development at Digby Island.
