It seems that more modest vehicles are subsidizing the cost of insuring luxury cars in B.C.—something the new NDP government is calling a “priority” to change as part of a review of the public auto insurer. Fender-benders on Lamborghinis or Ferraris can cost more than a typical middle-class car, but the premiums charged by ICBC can be comparatively less expensive, according to figures provided to CTV News by ICBC.
The RCMP is facing questions about why it didn’t tell the public about a murder in a Starbucks until four weeks after it happened, in response to questions from CTV News. Michael Page-Vincelli, 22, was beaten to death in a Burnaby Starbucks after a dispute over a cigarette got out of hand. Witnesses told CTV News that Page-Vincelli appeared upset and lashed out at a woman who had dropped a lit cigarette on the ground. “There was a lady sitting in the car out there.
A Richmond city councillor is denouncing an ongoing ad campaign by the neighbouring community of Delta as “fake news” that “fudges the facts” on the proposed replacement to the Massey Tunnel. The ads, which began running last month, claim an upgraded tunnel between Richmond and Delta is “not an option” because it wouldn’t be safe in an earthquake – a claim denied by Richmond’s engineering staff. “This ad is a really great example of fake news.
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".
