On Sunday at about 7:30 a.m., RCMP say a police vehicle was stopped for a red light at the intersection of Highway 16 and Toronto Street in Smithers. An RCMP spokesperson said the police vehicle was eastbound on Highway 16 and proceeded through the intersection when the light turned green. A Ford pickup which was westbound on Highway 16 made a left turn and collided with the police cruiser.
The hot and dry weather has spread north, so the BC Wildfire Service is reminding the public that all open burning remains prohibited in the entire Northwest Fire Centre. That includes campfires. The Town of Smithers open fire ban is also in effect, so burning inside and outside of town is prohibited. The current wildfire risk in southern parts of the fire centre is "high" to "extreme" and the provincial wildfire situation remains serious.
After a successful legal challenge that referred the approval of the TransCanada Prince Rupert Gas Transmission (PRGT) pipeline back to the National Energy Board (NEB) for consideration and the decision by Petronas to kill the Pacific NorthWest (PNW) LNG project, TransCanada will review options related to the project. "We were informed of PNW LNG's decision on July 25, and it will take some time for us to determine the next steps for PRGT," said Shawn Howard, spokesperson for TransCanada.
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".
