Blog Watching: Week ending October 25, 2020

LNG is back to a fashion, and that caught the eye of a large number of our readers this week, that with word that the District of Port Edward had revealed some interest from a proponent for a small scale LNG facility just off of highway 16.

The last week of the 2020 provincial election proved to be a news maker on the North Coast this last week, with the BC NDP raising concerns over Andrew Wilkinson's past experience as a lawyer with Sun Wave the familiar name of many a City of Prince Rupert legal battle.

The recent commentary on the North Coast election race from Stikine NDP candidate Nathan Cullen also attracted much attention this week, and our notes on how the BC Liberals addressed the controversy was a widely read article.

The earth moved significantly in Northern Alaska and as a result the North Coast and much of Coastal BC was on a holding pattern, awaiting word of any potential tsunami impact for British Columbia.

And the City's ground transportation to and from the Prince Rupert Airport is up for bid, with the municipality seeking bids through the BC Bid website.

However, when it came to the most read item of the last week, a familiar theme of not too long ago in LNG is suddenly back in the spotlight.
