Blog Watching, week ending February 28, 2016
While there's been no shortage of disappointing news of late on the theme of LNG development, one positive note appeared this week for those on the North Coast looking for a bit of progress.
Earlier this week the Australian energy company Woodside outlined plans to hold an Open House in March, an announcement that found a fair bit of interest from readers this week.
And while AltaGas provided for some of that disappointing review for LNG,, the Alberta company remained positive on its plans to move forward with a proposed propane export terminal, with this weeks financial update capturing a share of the attention from our offerings this week.
Basketball season on the North Coast has reached the championship stage and a number of Charles Hays Rainmaker teams were in the news this week, with both the Senior Girls and Junior Boys part of this weeks news cycle.
Bringing our top five items of the week to a close, was our update on an early Thursday morning fire on the Prince Rupert waterfront and the reward offered by the Metlakatla First Nation for information about a trio of suspected incidents of arson near the ferry dock.
However, the top item of the week comes the LNG files and the plans of the Australians.
