Top Stories of the Week

It's always interesting to see what the readers of Energeticcity are most interested in the region. Sometimes it's a big decision that will impact property taxes, and sometimes it's a new restaurant coming to town. Here are the top stories for the week of August 21-27, 2022

  1. New Restaurants and Gas Station in FSJ: speaking of new restaurants coming to town, it was announced that Fort St John is getting a Popeyes, a Mucho Burrito, and more. While this may not have been a top story in a big city, our readers are always down for new places to eat at.
  2. Alaska Highway Closed: one of our duties as reporters is to let you know when major accidents are causing delays. This accident happened near Sikanni Chief and was big enough to shut down the Alaska Highway for a while.
  3. Major Crimes Takes Over: after a suspicious incident in Chetwynd, the RCMP's North District Major Crime Unit was called in to investigate.
