With Canada's softwood lumber industry facing tumultuous trade relations with the United States, it may want to "seize" the opportunity to export more products to China, says Canada's new ambassador to China. "With trouble on the U.S. front in that sector, it's more natural for Canada to turn to China as a partial recipient of Canadian forest products," said John McCallum, who spoke to a Chinese delegation meeting with Alberta business leaders in Edmonton on Tuesday.
When Betty Anne Gagnon left her long-time home in Calgary to live with her sister near Sherwood Park, she also left a circle of acquaintances she had developed over years. The 48-year-old woman with developmental disabilities went bowling every week, she walked to 7-Eleven every day to buy a newspaper, and she participated in classes through city organizations. Gagnon also lived with "supportive roommates," who took a lead role in supporting her. Four years after the move, Gagnon was dead.
Edmonton's drainage assets, estimated to be worth more than $1 billion, will be transferred to city-owned EPCOR within six months after a close vote at council on Wednesday. Council voted 7-6 in favour of the move, which will allow EPCOR to control Edmonton's drainage services. The utility already owns and manages water and wastewater services. EPCOR has argued consolidation of the city's water systems could lead to cost savings and lower rates for taxpayers.
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".
