It was another four years before the case came to trial; Magali grew angry and frustrated at the delays. "You feel powerless, and you want to do something," said the 29-year-old mother of two. "I would have liked to go talk to the judge and say 'Hey, do you understand how difficult this is? Why is my case taking so long?'" That was two years ago. Magali faced an even bigger shock this spring. The man she accused of hurting her, at whose trial she had twice testified, was granted a stay of proceedings.
Algonquin leaders who testified Tuesday at the Quebec inquiry into the treatment of Indigenous people say they face discrimination because of the colour of their skin — or because French is their second or third language. "I was raised on a reserve all my life. I went to a French school, so I know what it's like to face discrimination because of the different colour of the skin," said Verna Polson, Grand Chief of the Algonquin Anishinabeg Nation Tribal Council.
The second witness at Quebec's inquiry into the treatment of Indigenous people says half the First Nations and Inuit people in the province consider discrimination against them to be "normal" behaviour. Ghislain Picard, the chief of the Assembly of First Nations for Quebec and Labrador (AFN-QL), gave the example of a woman who recently took her young daughter to an emergency room because the child's face was partially paralyzed.
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".
