The number of “granny flats” available in London may be about to go up. City politicians decided late Tuesday night to lift a ban on “secondary dwelling units,” otherwise known as granny flats, in neighbourhoods near Western University and Fanshawe College. While there are currently some granny flats in “near-campus neighbourhoods,” those units were grandfathered in.
A familiar face has announced they intend to run for London City Council in 2018. Bud Polhill, who served on council for 26 years between 1988 and 2014 confirmed to AM980 on Tuesday, he will run for council next year. Polhill lost his Ward 1 seat to Michael van Holst in an upset in the 2014 election. Van Holst, a political newcomer, surprised political watchers by easily winning the election by over 1,000 votes. Van Holst won 50.67 per cent of the vote in 2014.
OPP say an officer observed a vehicle speeding along Commissioners Road West inside London, around 5 a.m. on Saturday. Police say the vehicle was travelling at 100 km/h in a 60 km/h zone. When the officer approached the vehicle, they discovered a 15-year-old boy was behind the wheel, with a 14-year-old boy in the passenger seat.

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".
