Blog Watching: Week ending November 6, 2016

Regional politics took the main stage in our week of review of the five top items from the blog over the last seven days, with some strong interest in our notes on the Nisga'a election held this week across the Northwest.

The attention towards politics continued into the municipal level as well. With readers looking over our review of how Prince Rupert has compared to other areas of the Northwest when it comes to Federal infrastructure funding over the last decade.

The city's business scene also provided for some interest this week, with our item related to the pending closure of Carter's Jewelers in the city making for  a frequently reviewed item.

A long standing crime file found some renewed attention, with readers digging into our look at a new CBC podcast project, one that is retracing much of the investigation in the 1989 disappearance and death of Alberta Williams.

The North Coast sports scene also gained some attention,  as success on the soccer pitch was worth celebrating and catching up on, delivering a strong volume of readers to explore our notes from the Charles Hays Rainmakers Northwest Zones victory.

However, the top story of the week takes us into the Nass Valley and the results from the Nisga'a election campaign of 2016.
