A new Grande Prairie clinic catering to patients interested in using medical marijuana has opened in Grande Prairie. Leaf Wise Rx, a Calgary-based medical cannabis clinic, held an open house Wednesday at its new location in Junction Point on the second floor in the PrimeCARE Health building. The clinic’s local owner is Andrew Boone, manager of the PrimeCARE clinic. He said a growing number of PrimeCARE patients had been inquiring about medical marijuana.
The leaders of Alberta’s two conservative parties on Tuesday urged Grande Prairie-area residents to take up memberships and vote to unite the parties. Between 250 and 300 people packed into a conference room at the Pomeroy Hotel to hear Wildrose Leader Brian Jean and Progressive Conservative Leader Jason Kenney speak about the agreement to create a United Conservative Party. They said if members don’t vote to ratify the agreement on July 22, the NDP will maintain an advantage in the next election.
Local residents can learn about the provincial ombudsman and register complaints this week. Some of the ombudsman’s investigators are visiting Grande Prairie on Wednesday and Peace River on Thursday. After a presentation on their services, they’ll meet one-on-one to hear complaints by appointment (call 1-888-455-2756 to book one).
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".
