Blog Watching: Week ending April 9, 2017

When it comes to our work on the blog, history has shown that when we push the post button on anything with the letters LNG in it, the reaction is quick and rather attentive from our readers around the Northwest.

LNG related items found a large audience on the blog this week, with our article on the latest comments from the Petronas CEO grabbing the majority of the volume of readership this week.

Also finding strong audience numbers was our look at the details of the recently signed LNG benefits agreement between the Province and the Gitga'at First Nation.

Educating the youth of Prince Rupert proved to be a popular story, with a large audience checking in to review our notes on the work of the White Hat Program in the city's schools this week. The White Hat team was here to engage with youth on Internet and online safety issues. Also finding some strong attention was our look at a group from CHSS and their journey to Vimy Ridge this weekend.

Federal Politics also was of some interest to readers from the last seven days, with our articles on electoral reform and the concerns related to NAFTA and the potential for impact on trade through Canada's ports both gaining much attention through the week.

Our top story however, returns to the theme of LNG development and a look at the latest comments to the Malaysian media from the President and CEO of Petronas, who offered up a short look towards the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG project.

Petronas reportedly giving consideration for entire shift of Pacific NorthWest project to Ridley site -- As has been the case in the past, anytime something new on one of the area's LNG projects pops up, the volume of readership increases significantly. The latest on that theme, our notes from the start of the week on some comments to the Malaysian media from Datuk Wan Zulkiflee Wan Arffin, the Petronas CEO and President.    (posted April 3, 2017)
