Health Care tops the list of the most read items from the last seven days, that as MLA Jennifer Rice takes on the discussion over health care in Prince Rupert, the MLA hotsing a public forum on Monday, August 29th at the Lester Centre.

The MLA's offer of a Conversation on Health was the most read item of the week, followed closely by a milestone moment for the Prince Rupert Port Authority.

That came with the official opening of the Fairview-Ridley Island Connector Road, the private transportation corridor that will take much of the heavy truck traffic off the streets of the City.

The Port factored into one other story from our list of the Five Most read, that as City Council once again took up the theme of Port payments to the municipalities of the North Coast, noting of the recent listings of the Payments in lieu of Taxes that the City delivered to Port Edward.

Municipal Politics took another placement in our Five most read items, with the announcement of two more candidates for City Council. One a newcomer, the other an incumbent.

Also of note this week for readers, the City released the list of proposed Property Exemptions for 2023.

The top item of the week however puts the focus on the much discussed topic of Health Care on the North Coast and in Prince Rupert.
