Blog Watching: Week ending August 20, 2017

While the prospect of LNG development opportunities have become reduced in recent months, there are still a few potential projects in play on the North Coast.

This week, we outlined the latest notes related to the proposed Exxon/Imperial Oil terminal project, with company representatives set to arrive in town next week set to answer questions about their Tuck Inlet terminal proposal from  those who drop into their First Avenue offices.

Such it seems is the ongoing interest in the fate of LNG, that our update on the WCC LNG plans was by far the most read item of the week.

Among the remainder of the weeks most viewed articles was our story which explored the efforts of local politicians in the Northwest to try and gain a share of resource revenues on the North Coast.

Civic notes also claimed some readership this week, with our items on the City of Prince Rupert's call for applications for community grants; as did notes on the damage caused to the Civic Centre sports field following an arson incident.

Wrapping up the five most read items was our look at some election numbers, featuring a review of the revenues and expenses that were released by Elections BC related to the 2017 Spring provincial election.

The top story of the week however returns keeps the LNG files on the front burner, with our article on the proposed LNG project from Exxon/Mobil attracting a large audience.
