Ellen Blais has been in the health-care industry long enough to see how implicit biases towards Indigenous people can affect their health. "You're working with clients who are nervous about going into an institutionalized settings like hospitals," said Blais, a member of the Oneida Nation of the Thames and midwife practitioner in Toronto since 2006.

Aisha Ahmad’s night out at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra was ruined before it even began. The University of Toronto international security professor says she’s not sure if she’ll ever go back to see concerts at Roy Thomson Hall after the treatment she received from staff following an altercation with another patron Wednesday, in which she says she was physically assaulted and insulted. “This is an incredibly embarrassing thing to have happened to me in a city that I love,” she said.
Ask Jamie Game what helped him deal with his addictions, and the answer may surprise you. "This garden is absolutely magical. It turned my life around," said Game, a longtime patient at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). He's referring to The Sunshine Garden, a half-acre green space tucked behind Queen Street, away from the general public but serving as a therapeutic oasis for hundreds of CAMH clients.
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".
