Blog Watching: Week ending December 17, 2017

Law enforcement notes seemed to be the main item of interest for our readers this week, as a pair of stories related to the work of the Prince Rupert detachment of the RCMP generated some strong results as the days moved along.

Some themes from Prince Rupert City Council also found a wide audience over the last seven days, as readers explored some of our notes from the December 11th Council session.

Among the stories that generated significant interest was a presentation from the local Minor Softball association, a look at the city's Capital spending plans for 2018 and the latest thoughts from City Council members on road safety in the community and some of the areas where the City may be able to improve on the conditions.

The top story of the last seven days however takes us to the RCMP detachment at Sixth Avenue West and McBride, with our look at some of the work of the local Mounties.

Warrants issued for two Prince Rupert residents in drug lab related case file -- Law enforcement issues captured the most attention this week, with our item on the warrant search for two Prince Rupert residents finding a wide audience, as did our follow up notes on the annual CounterAttack program results to this point.  .    (posted December 11, 2017)

That article was followed by:

Local Minor Softball association to make presentation on local field availability tonight at council -- An appearance from the PRMSA at City Council was of some interest to readers this, week with almost as many returning a few days later to see how things turned out from our follow up item.

Road safety concerns remain on the mind of City council --  With a growing list of struck pedestrians or near misses through the downtown core, City Council once again had a few thoughts on road safety in the community and how to improve things.     (posted December 13, 2017)

Infrastructure, public works and recreation spending among the highlights for Capital projects in 2018 --  The City's financial blue print for 2018 will see some focus put on capital projects and we relayed some of the findings from a report from the City's Financial officer. As part of that review, we also offered up a bit more background on the now underway three phase rebuild of the city's water supply system  from Shawatlan Lake. (posted December 14, 2017)

Council to hear update from local CBC advocates at meeting tonight --  There may be no more loyal listenership base for CBC Radio than that which can be found in the Northwest and on Monday a pair of CBC Radio advocates delivered a report to Council on how the public broadcaster is representing the region.  Readers of our blog found our preview item worthy of a read and then also returned in strong numbers later in the week as we followed up on the presentation to Council.
