Despite what some might believe, the busiest time for the Prince Albert Food Bank is during the summer. “There’s a few different factors involved with that,” Wes Clark, executive director of the food bank, said. “Those who are able are gone out of the city. I’m no different than anyone else – if I get a chance I’m off to the lakes. So people who are donating food, many of them, are not even around.
Lighting up a smoke in a public place including at a bar or restaurant patio could be a thing of the past in Prince Albert. That’s the hope outlined in a recent report to the city’s community services advisory committee. At the moment, the only city-related bylaw around smoking is prohibiting someone from lighting up in city facilities and vehicles. The city also has a policy around no smoking at facility entrances, outdoor pools and sepctator areas but these aren't enforced through bylaw.
The mother of an inmate who died at the Saskatchewan Penitentiary last month is taking the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) and the Attorney-General of Canada to court. Lauren Elizabeth Laithwaite filed her statement of claim on Tuesday in Regina following the death of her 37-year-old son, Christopher Andrew Van Camp. The lawsuit stems from the death of Van Camp last month while he was serving time at the penitentiary in Prince Albert.
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".
