Blog Watching, Week ending April 17, 2016

Lelu Island once again jumped to the top of the headlines this week with two items of interest capturing much of the attention of our readers over the last seven days.

The first of the two high traffic notes came through our item related to a letter delivered by the Prince Rupert Port Authority to those currently holding their place on Lelu Island the proposed development site for an LNG terminal on the North Coast.

Not surprisingly the item with the second highest amount of views on the week came from the response by hereditary chiefs, who replied to the communication from the Port by way of a letter to the Prime Minister and other federal officials.

City Council affairs took a few spots on our list of five on the week, first with our review of the Monday evening session through our City Council Timeline, followed by our overview of a presentation from representatives of AltaGas who provided an update for Council on their plans for a Propane export terminal at Ridley Island.

Our final item of the review of five found readers showing much interest in our pictorial account of last weekend's Grand Opening of the Cow Bay Marina and community boardwalk.

However, the top item of the week once again turns to the issues related to LNG development in the Northwest. In this instance, it was the correspondence from the Port to those that are currently holding their places in protest over the proposed development at Lelu Island
