The City of Winnipeg has released a list of 20 major streets it wants to repair over six years, but it needs the Pallister government to sign off. In the summer city council requested $182 million in federal infrastructure funds. Now a wish list of 20 streets is on the table for upgrades including Portage Avenue downtown, Broadway between Osborne and Main and repairs on other regional roads like Pembina, Lagimodiere, and University Crescent.
Drivers and bus riders are significantly impacted by the City of Winnipeg's 2018 budget. Homeowners will once again pay an extra 2.3% per cent for property taxes, the bulk of the hike going to road repairs. The street renewal budget for 2018 will rise to $116 million, an $11 million increase. But drivers will pay more to park. A $1 dollar increase at meters is expected to bring in $3.5 million and push more turn over.
Premier Brian Pallister says he's happy to be alive. At times getting very emotional, the premier addressed the media for the first time since he got lost hiking in New Mexico and broke his arm last week. Pallister says he was behind schedule on the hike when the sun went down, causing him to wander away from the designated trail. The premier says while he made his way through the cactus and barbed wire filled wilderness for hours in the dark he fell several times.
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".
