Blog Watching: Week ending June 24, 2018

In the course of most weeks, any news out of the Port of Prince Rupert would dominate the news flow and quickly rise to the top of the listings of our five most read items, and while the Port does claim volume on the week, the top spot on the blog's reading list belongs to the nation's top politician.

That from the journey to Prince Rupert by Prime Minister Trudeau an event whichc captured a fair bit of attention, in a very short period of time.

Port news however did share some of the spotlight this week as well, with three of our five stories focused on news coming out of the Annual Public meeting held at the North Coast Convention Centre on Tuesday evening.

The only other story to crack the list of five, came from our notes on Monday's official name change for the regional college, as NWCC faded into the sunset, with the morning of Monday introducing Coast Mountain College across all campus locations in the Northwest.

The top story of the week however belongs to Mr. Trudeau, who created quite the buzz with his short stopover in the city, a visit that was framed in matters of reconciliation with First Nations and was catalogued through many options by local residents through Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.

Prime Minister to make Prince Rupert pit stop on Thursday  -- Word first began to circulate on Wednesday morning of the prospect of a visit to Prince Rupert by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, leading to some social media speculation as to why he was coming and the odd report that he was already here. As Thursday morning moved forward, the purpose became clear, with the Prime Minister and representatives from a number of Coastal First Nations announcing an agreement on Marine Protection on the North and Central Coast.    (posted June 20, 2018)
