HALIFAX _ Finance Minister Bill Morneau took his “listening tour” over Ottawa’s controversial tax proposals to Halifax on Friday, drawing criticism from some small business owners and concerns from Nova Scotia’s Liberal premier. Morneau met with local small business owners at a library in downtown Halifax, and said afterwards he heard concerns about the changes, but also an understanding that a system is needed that is fair for all Canadians.
HALIFAX -- The crew of a Canadian warship helping residents of a small Caribbean island devastated by hurricane Irma is being forced to suspend their mission now that hurricane Maria is bearing down on the region. Cmdr. Gord Noseworthy said the Halifax-based frigate HMCS St. John's is slated to depart South Caicos on Wednesday evening after its 230-member crew spent several days cleaning debris from streets, delivering water and helping restore power to the hurricane-ravaged island.
HALIFAX â€” The crew of HMCS St. John's is helping deliver supplies and clear debris in the Caribbean in the wake of hurricane Irma. The Halifax-based frigate is in the Turks and Caicos islands to provide humanitarian relief to the islands as part of the Canadian Armed Forces' Operation Renaissance. Rear Admiral Craig Baines, the new commander of Canada's East Coast fleet, shared images on Twitter that showed sailors inspecting jetties in the island chain and a helicopter delivering supplies.
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".
