Blog Watching: Week ending May 24, 2020

The Province of British Columbia is ready to open the schools and this week parents/guardians and students, as well as school staff members gained a bit more information on what may be ahead.

Two of our most read items of the week had the focus on education as readers explored our notes on a virtual town hall held last week, as well as the SD52 plans for the June launch.

Also gaining a large audience this week, an RCMP update on the investigation into a body which had been discovered last week, with the case file now advanced to that of a homicide investigation.

A pair of items that also caught the eyes of readers included the City of Prince Rupert making some plans to tackle some big projects and a warning from the City on accounts of wolf sightings in the community the last few weeks.

The restart of the British Columbia commercial sector also made for some news this week, and locally a good resource for who was opening proved to be the Chamber of Commerce Social media features.

But when it came to the most read item of the last week, Education captured the most interest, as we took note of a number of Back to School themed items for the week.

Ministry of Education to host Virtual Town Hall on Wednesday Night -- Such was the interest in the BC government's return to School plans for June 1st, that our notes on a Virtual Town Hall this past week topped our listings, as readers explored more on what was planned for Wednesday night. Also attracting a large audience on the same theme this week was the local plan moving forward from SD52.    (posted  May 19, 2020)
