VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – British Columbia’s premier-designate is missing important talks on NAFTA and softwood lumber with Canada’s premiers, because he hasn’t been sworn in yet. The 2017 summer Council of the Federation meeting is being held in Edmonton from July 18-19. Premiers will discuss Canada-US relations, global trade, cannabis and opioids, among other topics. But John Horgan is due to be sworn at the Legislature in Victoria tomorrow.
PORT COQUITLAM (NEWS 1130) – Possible development over the next two decades on Burke Mountain has the mayor of neighbouring Port Coquitlam concerned. Traffic is one of the major issues for Mayor Greg Moore, who explains the main road goes through his city, and who claims there’s already a lot of traffic along Coast Meridian.
QUESNEL (NEWS 1130) – If you’re planning to spend the Canada Day long weekend in the wilderness, you’ll probably be able to gather around a campfire. However, there is one region in the province with a partial ban in place. The province says that region is the Cariboo. Fire Information Officer Claire Allen says campfires are banned in the Cariboo-Chilcotin Forest District west of the Fraser River, and throughout a provincial park.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
