Blog Watching: Week ending December 20, 2020

Another land deal in the making for the City of Prince Rupert proved to be our most popular item of the week, with our notes on a recent posting to the BC Bid Site for potential development of land for a new subdivision finding a large audience.

The week also found a new release on local health data from the BC CDC which indicates that Prince Rupert continues to fare well when it comes to the provincial work on COVID measures, with still less than fifteen cases recorded since January.

The Prince Rupert FireFighters introduced some new work clothing this week, while the Prince Rupert RCMP were cleared of any concerns related to a traffic incident of October.

Rounding out the top five, was our look at the next step in an information campaign from Prince Rupert Teachers on themes of COVID.

However, the prospect of some potential new housing and the city's involvement in the preparation for it proved to be the most popular item of the week and that by a significant margin.
