Blog Watching, Week ending February 14, 2016
Not surprisingly, with the week long focus on the All Native Basketball Tournament at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre, our Results page and archive of news items received much attention this week.
When it came to non-basketball related items, two items related to some of the discussions from Tuesday's Prince Rupert City council session found a wide audience.
Rounding out the five most read items of the week, our notes on the British Columbia Government's Speech from the Throne and the release of the Draft report from the CEAA regarding the Pacific NorthWest LNG project also attracted a large number of views through the week.
However, the top item of the week comes from the 2016 edition of the ANBT, with significant numbers of readers checking in daily at our results and news pages.
