Blog Watching: Week ending October 30, 2022

Politics  dominated much of the week's most read items, with the last City Council session for the current membership arriving,  a gathering that provided for two of our five top items of the week.

Another civic item, that a tender call for some renovations on the Sherman GM facility on Portage Road also gained a larger readership.

A visit to the North Coast from NDP leader Jagmeet Singh also proved to be a widely read item.
