In a highly unusual instance, James Forcillo testified in an impaired driving case after his conviction for the attempted murder of Sammy Yatim. A defence lawyer can seek to cross-examine police officers on the charges they are facing but the resulting information may not be much help to a judge since the defence lawyer cannot try to prove the allegation in court in what would amount to a mini-trial, Theriault's lawyer Michael Lacy told the court during the recent hearing.
In another impaired driving case in which Theriault is a central witness, a hearing was held last month because the defence lawyer wants the court to allow her access to information about the investigation into Theriault by the Special Investigations Unit, the province’s police watchdog. She also wants the court to permit her to cross-examine him about the mischief charge he faces for allegedly misleading the police.
If a sexual assault victim or the prosecutor requests a publication ban on their name, the court must grant it. A judge can also order such a ban. A judge granted Dreise permission to lift the publication ban on her identity Monday morning — a publication ban that she never requested or was even asked about. Dreise was one of the 21 female patients sexually assaulted by anesthesiologist Dr. George Doodnaught.
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".
