Blog Watching: Week ending October 27, 2018
The most popular item of our week's work came from our look at a few of the still to be completed road projects in the region and hopes for an update from the City on the status of their million dollar roadwork to-do list from 2019.
Also of note over the last seven days, some news out of City Council, where we heard of some future development plans from the Gitmaxmak'ay Nisga'a Society, as well as a change of ownership of a pair of local Seniors residences in the community.
A new labour contract at CityWest will also see a new look for the union representing the workers at the City of Prince Rupert owned communication company, with the number of unions now consolidated into one single bargaining unit.
And after a forty day campaign, Skeena-Bulklkey Valley voters left the riding in the hands of the NDP, sending Taylor Bachrach to Ottawa to take up the work of the now retired Nathan Cullen.
However, the top item of the last seven day found us hopping in the NCR Mystery machine for a run around town along some of its rather challenging roads.
