Blog Watching: Week ending January 23, 2022

A busy week for the city's First Responders made for a variety of items to chronicle and a few of our entries of the last seven days captured a fair bit of attention, with a look at a response on Park Avenue the one that topped the list of five. 

Two Port related topics also generated a large readership, with our notes on the year end report on shipments through the range of terminals on the waterfront, along with some demolition work near the Northland Cruise Terminal both among the five articles reviewed the most.

The return to more familiar weather for Prince Rupert has come, along with the start of what will be a few months of road maneuvering as the plague of potholes begins to pop up for a new year, an omen of work to come for the City's operations department.

And Back to school for the New Year comes with some additional COVID measures, with our story on the concerns and recommendations from the city's teachers' union making for some interest this week.

However, when sirens sound, readers take note; with an early week response from PRFD and the RCMP on Park Avenue to attend to a car incident gaining the largest readership:

Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue, RCMP attend to vehicle incident on Park Avenue  --  Capturing some work by the PRFD and Prince Rupert RCMP along Park Avenue found a large audience this week, a motor vehicle incident on slick streets one of a number of files we noted over the last seven days, you can review our notes on the Responders of the Northwest  here.  (posted January 18  , 2022)

That article was followed by:
