Blog Watching: Week ending January 15, 2017

Pita's and Pucks dominated our news flow for the week, with readers heading for our stories on the opening of the city's newest food option and the community's quest to become the next Hockeyville.

Not far off the pace on the week was some significant interest in the travels of the Charles Hays Senior Boy's Rainmakers and their trip to the Pitt Meadows Air Show this week.

Our notes on the latest court challenge for the proposed LNG terminal at Lelu Island also attracted a large audience, with readers looking to learn more about the court filing in Vancouver by members of the Gitxsan who oppose Pacific NorthWest LNG's site selection.

Civic politics also cracked the top five this week, as Councillor Cunningham's concerns to Council about the icy state of many of the city's sidewalks appears to have resonated with readers.

However, the top story by far was the debut of the new Pita Pit location, which judging by our readership level on the week was a much anticipated event.
