The husband of a Coquitlam dog walker who was found this morning (Wednesday) after she went missing on Monday thanked the searchers for their efforts. And Marcel Poitras gave two pieces of advice after she was found safe and sound in the bush with the three dogs in her care: "I just want to say, support your local search and rescue and, you know what, hug your spouse tonight."
VIDEO UPDATE FROM COQUITLAM RCMP AT 5 P.M.: It has now been more than 24 hours since 56-year-old Annette Poitras went missing in Coquitlam's Westwood Plateau area, and while the investigation remains an urgent, high priority, search efforts are being scaled back overnight. ••••••••••• Coquitlam Search and Rescue are on the hunt for a 56-year-old woman who has gone missing on Westwood Plateau. Nore Shore Rescue volunteers have also joined in the effort, along with teams from other regions.
Coquitlam residents got a glimpse this week of the property tax increase they might be facing in 2018. Maintaining current service levels would mean a 1.13% rise in rates for the average homeowner, with the additional $1.5 million in net revenue being used to cover annual contractual increases and inflationary adjustments.
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".
