Blog Watching: Week ending March 31, 2024

Housing took the lead over Health care this week as the most read item from our list of five.  

It was interest in the City's notes related to opportunities to add a secondary suite to our homes that captured the most interest of readers over the last seven days.

It being a City Council week,  our look at a number of Council initiatives from the Monday session attracted a large audience.

Among them, the frustration over noise and smells for residents of Wayne Place Seniors Residences and the latest Report from the Prince Rupert Fire Department. 

As well our look at some of the new construction projects and the pace of the demolition of the Angus apartments also gained a large audience.

And the Health care crisis in Prince Rupert continued into a second week of Emergency Room Closures, which also brought a visit to the community by Heath Minister Adrian Dix.
When it came to the most read item of the week however,  changes to provincial housing regulations and how the impact on additional suites was the item which gained the largest audience.
