[quote=“ThePodunkian”]If councillors Ashley and Garon are wondering why Prince Rupert residents haven’t been more engaged in their community consultation sessions over the last six weeks or so, perhaps the events of Monday night at Prince Rupert City Council may help to shed some light as to the cause of the apathetic nature of some residents.
For some it could very well be that City residents may get the impression that city council just doesn’t want to listen to their concerns or complaints anymore, a concept that perhaps may have some merit.
Monday’s session seemed to bring out the snark in Mayor Jack Mussallem, who offered up a very public verbal smack down to local recycling advocate Jean Martin.

Podunkian, great web site to gather information. I cannot believe how many guests are online and just watching how they respond to some topics for viewing. Over 85 guests and the view numbers keep rising. Perhaps council may look at adding this link to their web site for people to gather information. But again, maybe not, eh? [/quote]
Thanks for the compliments, it’s always a bit rewarding when a topic seems to strike a chord with folks.
One of the reasons I started the blog oh so many years ago was to keep kind of a flowing archive of events here. Sometimes we keep up the pace, sometimes we slip, but for the most part we try to remain consistent.
As for your suggestion of official blessing from the city, somehow I don’t see that in the ole Podunkian portal’s future.
