Blog Watching: Week ending March 6, 2016
LNG issues claimed three of the five items of interest on the week for readers, with two different proposed developments still apparently high on the local radar.
The Pacific NorthWest LNG project grabbed two spots on our list of most read items this week, while the plans from the Australian energy company Woodside accounted for our third item to grab a top five spot this week.
On non LNG issues, a request for assistance from the public by the Prince Rupert detachment of the RCMP caught the attention of many readers, while basketball as it always does at this time of the year proved popular.
This time it was the Prince Rupert Middle School Storm that has captured the attention of local residents as they participated in the Grade Eight finals in Pitt Meadows this week.
However, the top item of the week comes once again from the LNG files and our look at some financial and corporate developments with the Malaysian energy company Petronas.
