A former Niagara Falls artist has had her conviction for arson set aside, and a new trial ordered. Jeannette Tossounian was found guilty of arson and being in possession of incendiary materials in 2012 in connection with a fire that destroyed her art gallery at 107 Welland Ave. in St. Catharines. The appeal’s panel of three judges ruled that the Crown failed to provide Tossounian with a proper disclosure of all the evidence it had.
Niagara Regional Police have made an arrest in an assault outside the Mansion House in downtown St. Catharines. Police found the victim outside the tavern's back parking lot that exits onto Ontario Street with an injury to his head on July 6. The victim was later taken to hospital with a significant injury to his face and head. The St. Catharines detective office took over the investigation. Russell Brooker, 30, is charged with aggravated assault and he has been released on an undertaking.
The meeting didn’t go up in smoke, but it didn’t quite create the buzz the mayor of West Lincoln had in mind. A large medical marijuana production facility on 20.9 hectares of land south of Smithville was the subject of a planning meeting Monday — but the proponent was a no-show, Mayor Doug Joyner said. “We allowed people to come up and voice their opinion,” Joyner said. “There is an element of fear out there in the community. People are looking for answers.
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".
