Blog Watching: Week ending July 10, 2016

Municipal politics, some items of note on LNG and a major road improvement project all found their way to the top of our weekly review this week.

City Council developments took two of the five items on the list of five for this week, with our comparison of the top end salary landscape between Prince Rupert and other parts of B.C. gaining the largest amount of readers in recent months.

A pair of LNG related items were next in the most read category, with both our update on community meetings in Lax Kw'alaams to discuss the Pacific NorthWest LNG project and news from the Northeast related to the project itself both finding much in the way of interest.

Our observations about an editorial in the weekly paper about the relationship between the Port and the City also gained a strong audience over the last week.

And to bring the list of five to an end, there was a fair bit of interest in our look at the start of a major road rehabilitation project for the residents of Lax Kw'alaams and the impact that the new road will have on the community.

The top story of the week however, found a large number of readers exploring and in some cases discussing the theme of municipal compensation when it comes to Prince Rupert compared to a number of other British Columbia communities.
