Blog Watching: Week ending June 25, 2023

Some follow up on the June 15th Annual Public Meeting for the Prince Rupert Port Authority attracted some strong readership this week.

We featured a number of areas of interest from the session, with two catching the most attention, our notes on the Port's views on financials, such as PILT and taxation areas, as well as the update they provided towards the new Wolverine Marine Fuelling Terminal set to go into operation later this year.

Two civic themes caught the eye of readers as well, our story on the city's plans for the 2023 Paving Program and delays that have kept Crestview Drive and Applewaite both closed to area residents at the site of the city's waterline work.
