It’s a question Coun. Gian-Carlo Carra is wrestling with, and he says he’s giving some thought to putting forward a notice of motion that could lead to mandating a certain percentage of two- and three-bedroom units. “I haven’t pulled the trigger on this notice of motion because I don’t know what the answer is,” said Carra.
Coun. Druh Farrell says she'll be leading the charge on getting people to shovel their gosh darn sidewalks in a timely fashion. She said the notice of motion, which should be tabled on Jan. 29, will look at several issues. Number one is improving compliance from property owners who aren't shovelling within 24 hours of the snowfall. "Right now we don't have a fine, and we should be looking at a fine," said Farrell. "Too frequently we wait for a Chinook to do the work."
This marks the final year of Calgary’s 10-year plan to end homelessness, and while gains have been made, Mayor Naheed Nenshi says the opioid ciris could be a setback. “I’m obviously not satisfied as long as there’s people who don’t have a decent safe place to live,” said the mayor in an interview with Metro News. He said the 10-year plan was a major shift in the way we thought about homelessness. Before, mental health and addiction problems were believed to be the root cause of homelessness.
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".
