Even after the devastating Fort McMurray wildfire and an oilsands production shutdown, Wood Buffalo's regional economic growth is expected to outpace Edmonton, Calgary and Red Deer into 2018. By the year 2021, the Wood Buffalo Regional Municipality's GDP should return to where it was forecasted to be had the 2016 wildfire not ravaged the city. In other words, in three to four years, Fort McMurray's disaster-induced economic slump should be over.
Even though Métis elder Eric Desjarlais received a personal apology after wildlife officers interrupted a traditional gathering and seized dozens of smoked fish, he is still stuck with a ticket for illegal fishing and a court date.

A former PC cabinet minister who was kicked out of caucus after he was arrested in a prostitution sting is running for a council seat in Fort McMurray. Mike Allen was arrested in a prostitution sting in Minnesota in 2013. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour offence and paid a $500 fine and court costs. He was then re-admitted to caucus a year later. Allen, 55, said he has taken responsibility for his actions and believes voters have placed the scandal behind them.
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".
