After our August break from blogging, we made a mid week return, picking up on some themes that seemed to fly a bit low on the radar locally during our absence.
Yet one more road construction project launched this week, with the Ocean Centre area along Second Avenue West the focus for what will be a new bus pullout by next month.
Some notes on Municipal politics found a welcome reception from our readers, with our notes on a civic property sale in the Park Avenue area, entry of a third contestant for the Mayoralty race and City Council resolution plans for UBCM all finding a large audience this week.
As well, our notes on some investigative work for the Port of Prince Rupert towards some growing interest in the Hydrogen export market also caught the eye of readers.
The top item of the week however takes us downtown and a new Transit initiative for the city.
