Blog Watching: Week ending September 3, 2017

The latest success story for the Port of Prince Rupert dominated the news flow for the week, as residents of the North Coast joined a range of port, corporate, First Nation and regional political officials to celebrate the opening of the Fairview Container Terminal expansion.

Also finding a strong audience over the last seven days was a look at the quest by North Coast Regional District to find a Northwest resident to sit on the BC Ferry Authority Board.

An issue which we first tipped readers to ten days ago, became a major story as the weekend approached, with Greyhound announcing its plans to apply to the Passenger Transportation Board to cease operations on their Northern BC routes.

The continued growth of First Nations business opportunities in the Northwest was the focus of another popular story this week, as readers explored our item on a funding program hosted by the Prince Rupert based TRICORP organization.

And Port Edward's clean up project for September proved to be an item which caught the attention of readers, as they discovered more about the District's plan to award a cash prize to the resident who best cleans up their property over the course of the month.

The top story of the week however once again takes us to the Prince Rupert waterfront, where the Fairivew Container Terminals expansion project made news far beyond the North Coast
