Christine Elliott won the popular vote 52 to 48 per cent over Doug Ford in the third round of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario leadership race. She also won 64 ridings to his 60 on the last ballot. But because all ridings had 100 points divided by vote share on the weighted preferential ballot, Ford edged out Elliott by 50.6 to 49.4 per cent. The margin couldn’t have been thinner — Ford won by 153 points: 6,202 points to 6,049.
The secular decline of the sovereignty movement has profound implications for the next provincial and federal elections in Quebec. For the first time since 1970, sovereignty will not be a ballot question in the Quebec election this October. The leader of the Parti Québécois, Jean-François Lisée has pledged that if the PQ forms the next government, there will be no referendum on sovereignty during their first term in office.
Bill Morneau needs some new writers. Towards the end of his budget speech Tuesday, Morneau referred to Canada’s national parks as central to the Canadian identity. “We’ve all been there, Mr. Speaker. Whether it’s camping with our families, or going for a quiet hike alone in the woods. “How many of us have gone ice fishing with our friends? “Learned to swim at the end of a dock in a freezing cold lake? “Watched our kids skip rocks on the shore, or play in the leaves on a warm fall day?
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
