Our look at an easy to use and access app for phones and mobile devices that will help to learn the Sm'algyax made for our most read story of the week; with a large volume of readers looking to find out more about a project from recent CHSS grad Brendan Eshom.

Also generating a large volume of reads on the week was a look at a trip we made out to the east side of Prince Rupert, making the to investigate word of a partial apartment building collapse at a long closed building overlooking Seal Cove.

Municipal issues also found a large audience this week as we reviewed the latest request for bids from the City of Prince Rupert, this one related to their plans for an expansion of the landfill site.

As well, this week brought one more staffing change for School District 52, which has named a new Vice-Principal for École Roosevelt Park School.

However, when it came to the most read item of the last week, Brendan Eshom's helpful project to learn Sm'alagyax was by far the most popular story of the week.
