Blog Watching: Week ending September 30, 2018

Industrial development took the lead for the week as our notes on the development plan for the Vopak bulk fuels terminal attracted a large amount of viewers, looking to learn more about the two Open Houses that were schedules for last week.

Another industrial story that always attracts an interested audience is the Eagle Spirit pipeline and terminal proposal, and this week Eagle Spirit's Calvin Helin was making some news out of Calgary.

The final days of the Cruise season are almost upon us and as the last vessel call looms on the horizon in early October, Seaborn which is one of the dominant lines for the Prince Rupert industry announced their schedule for 2019.

Two items related to municipal politics caught the attention of our readers this week, with steady traffic reviewing our look at a lengthy presentation from Mayor Brain through the Northern View podcast this week, while a look at the theme of more transparency for council and how some of the Council candidates are exploring that narrative also resonated with readers.

However, the story which attracted the most interest through the week, explored the path ahead for a proposed bulk fuel terminal for the region, as Vopak hosted Open houses in Prince Rupert and Port Edward.
