Adam Picard, the former Canadian soldier accused of murder who had his trial thrown out due to court delays, is planning to launch an appeal to Canada's highest court to overturn a recent appeal court decision that ordered a new trial. On Monday, 11 days after the Ontario Court of Appeal ruled the accused killer should stand trial again, defence lawyer Lawrence Greenspon told an Ottawa judge he intends to seek leave to appeal to the Supreme Court.
Community health centres across the city are going ahead with a pilot project that will stock vending machines with free access to sterile needles and crack pipes. It's part of a harm-reduction strategy in partnership with Ottawa Public Health to stem the rise of drug-related infections.

Two women who are originally from Ottawa decided to ride out winds of up to 210 km/h from Hurricane Irma as the storm pounded Florida Sunday. Lynne Bermel Scripter is from Ottawa but moved to Venice, Florida, about five years ago and lives there with her husband, Dan Scripter. She told CBC Radio's Ottawa Morning Monday that overnight, the sound of the storm was "a bit like a freight train" and difficult to sleep through. "We could hear it moving counter-clockwise around the house," she said.
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".
