Some members of the Peguis First Nation are wondering why Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister doesn't seem to have met with any Indigenous people on his reconciliation bike ride to the community. On June 16, Pallister headed out from East Selkirk — the original location of Peguis First Nation — on a bike ride to its present-day location in honour of the 200th anniversary of the Selkirk Treaty.
A Liberian woman who walked into Canada through a farmer's field says she only took that route after being denied entry at a border crossing. On May 8, Watta Cephus came to Canada to claim asylum by walking through the field — something she says she was too afraid to do in March, after she first tried to enter Canada at an official crossing. "It's really scary. It could cost your life," said the 39-year-old. "I've seen stories of people who have lost their body parts — recently, the lady who died."
Next week, Manitoba's premier will be strapping on a bike helmet and riding out to the Peguis First Nation. Brian Pallister's three-day journey from Selkirk to the First Nation begins June 16, and is intended to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the signing of the Selkirk Treaty. "Why the bike ride?" asked Stevenson. "There is so much more he could do as a provincial leader." In March, Pallister announced his plan and called on Manitobans to write thank-you letters to their Indigenous neighbours.
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".
