Blog Watching: Week ending July 18, 2021

A quick response to a call from the Pinnacle Renewable Energy terminal on the waterfront for the Prince Rupert Fire Department made for the most read story of the week, the item outpacing the rest of our list of five by a healthy margin.

Other themes explored on the week that were of significant interest, included the roll out of the delivery by the City of Prince Rupert of the new garbage and recycling cans to homeowners across the city.

Some further controversy was found at the School Board office this week after the July special session made for a resignation from the Board Chair's position and some apparent heated debate of recent events.

The big jets are returning to regular service in the Northwest, though you will have to travel through the Terrace airport to get a glimpse of the Air Canada Airbus A320 which now offers service three times a week between Terrace and Vancouver.

And some news from Port Edward puts the wrap on our list of five, as the District outlines its plans for this summer in a quest to introduce more housing in the community.

However, the top item of interest for the week comes from the waterfront and a response to a fire call at the Pinnacle Pellet shipment terminal.
