Blog Watching: Week ending January 29, 2017

Provincial politics provided some themes for the week as the 2017 provincial election campaign began to heat up, with both the governing Liberals and opposition NDP identifying some of their talking points for the next four months of political discussion.

Also carving out some space on our list of the five most read items of the week was our look at some notes on Watson Island and a connection to a recent public notice related to some land disposal plans from the City of Prince Rupert.

A new addition to the city's fitness sector will soon open its doors, with a good readership found for our item on the plans of Genetics Fitness, which is set to open up a fitness centre in the Ocean Centre mall.

Also making news from the city's commercial sector was our piece on Northern Savings Credit Union and the latest search for a CEO, marking the third time in the last few years that a new name will be need to put on a door at the Third Avenue financial services organization.

The quick work by the staff of Wal-Mart also made the five most read items of the week, as we took note of a small fire in the Rupert Square store and how staff and management were able to have the store re-opened in less than 24 hours.

However, the top story turns to the political scene and the upcoming battle for the affections of the voter on the North Coast.
