First Nations that send their children to high school in Thunder Bay, Ont., are looking for other options after the deaths of nine Indigenous students in the city. Most remote First Nations in northern Ontario do not have high schools of their own and more than 100 teens travel to Thunder Bay each year to pursue their education. A meeting is planned next month to look at sending students to high schools outside the city, according to the Nishnawbe Aski Nation.
A decision is expected in about a month on the internal discipline for a Thunder Bay police sergeant who pleaded guilty to discreditable conduct after his handgun and ammunition were stolen from his personal vehicle in 2015. Sgt. Jim Glena entered the plea at a Police Services Act hearing on Friday. He has already been found guilty on the criminal charges related to the incident. He was given an absolute discharge in December 2016.
Tikinagan Child and Family Services is responding to concerns after a 12-year-old, who had been in the care of the First Nation child welfare agency, died by suicide last week in a remote community in northern Ontario. Jenera Roundsky died on June 13, several weeks after being sent back to Wapekeka First Nation by Tikinagan, against the wishes of community leaders, Wapekeka's band manager Joshua Frogg told CBC News on Wednesday.
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".
