A local judge sentenced a Quinte West man, who punched and killed his father’s best friend, to 48 months to send a message that resorting to fist is not an option to resolve conflicts. Joshua Hickey, 31, was sent to the penitentiary for another 35 months on top of the 13 months (402 days) he was credited for serving before opting to plead guilty to manslaughter for the death of 63-year-old Alvin Morrison.
The Crown is ready to proceed with the sentencing of a Quinte West man who was allowed out of jail for six weeks to visit with his sons, before he’s sent to the penitentiary for several years, after he plead guilty to manslaughter for the beating death of his father’s 62-year-old friend. Crown Attorney Adam Zegouras said Joshua Hickey is expected to present himself to the courts Aug. 18. “My understanding is he’s suppose to present himself to the courts for the sentencing hearing,” Zegouras said.
All three provincial party leaders have rejected a proposal from municipal leaders to raise the HST by one per cent and use the proceeds to close a $4.9 billion infrastructure gap, which Ontario mayor’s are calling a viable revenue stream. The proposal was suggested to provincial leaders including Premier Kathleen Wynne earlier this week during the Ottawa staging of Association of Municipalities of Ontario’s annual conference.
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".
