Speaking to a crowd of health care leaders in Vancouver, federal Health Minister Jane Philpott said Ottawa is doing everything it can to address the opioid overdose crisis but no single action or policy is going to solve it. "It is going to get worse before it gets better," said Philpott. "And if that hasn't been impressed upon you — no matter where you're from in this country — we need to be paying attention. We need to work together."
The family of a man who was stabbed to death by a stranger in the heart of Vancouver's busy entertainment district said the offender's sentence brings them no closure. On Tuesday, a B.C. Supreme Court judge sentenced Kenneth Bryson Williams, 26, to life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years. He was drunk when he stabbed Robert Tyson Smith to death during an altercation in February 2014. Smith had stepped out of the cab after two men began kicking and yelling at the car.
A member of the RCMP from Surrey survived a frigid night on Mt. Rainier in Washington State — without overnight gear — after he was separated from his group. 27-year-old Dennis "Endo" Cui spent nearly 24 hours at an elevation of more than 3700 metres before a team from the U.S. Army Reserve and Air Force was able to pluck him off the mountain using a military helicopter.

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".
