Twice a month, from late winter through spring, a caravan of vehicles heads east on a 140-km drive from the Surrey, B.C., campus of Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) to the Kwìkwèxwelhp Healing Village in Harrison Mills. Carrying 13 or 14 criminology students, the cars and SUVs tackle a steep and gravelly mountain road as they near their destination. To the eyes of Sujata Bakshi, Kwìkwèxwelhp (pronounced Kwee-kwee-kwelp) doesn’t much resemble what it is—a prison.
In recent years, courts have layered some common sense into the way in which the Canadian judiciary decides contractual disputes between parties. In a series of rulings by the Supreme Court of Canada and provincial appeal courts, judges have tried to clarify contract law and the "good faith" obligations owed by contracting parties.
Burton Jay Tacan was born in Brandon, Man., on April 8, 1978, to Debra, a community health representative and Lyle, an educator, both members of the Dakota (Sioux) First Nations. Burton grew up in Sioux Valley, about 45 minutes west of Brandon, as the oldest of five children; he had three sisters and a step-sister. His parents split when he was four. “He was very adventurous as a little boy,” says Debra, who raised Burton and her other children as a single working mother.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
