The City of Winnipeg has proposed a 25 cent increase in transit fares and cuts to 23 routes in its 2018 preliminary budget, tabled Wednesday. The budget is proposing the largest jump in transit fares since 2008, effective Jan. 1. Normally, fare increases are pegged at inflation or five cents a year. In 2011, a 25 cent hike was proposed but never passed.
Residents in St. James are meeting with their city councillor Saturday to discuss the proposal to locate an addictions centre in an area nestled among schools and homes along the Sturgeon Creek Greenway. Vicki Fedak has lived in the St. James area for 45 years. She plans to attend Saturday's talk with Coun. Shawn Dobson after learning last week about the proposal to situate the Bruce Oake Recovery Centre at the site of the former Vimy Arena, which has been vacant for three years.
In front of more than 300 Progressive Conservative delegates, Premier Brian Pallister joked Saturday he has spent less time at his tropical vacation home this year than NDP Leader Wab Kinew has spent behind bars. The comment came during the party's second annual general meeting since coming to power 18 months ago. During a question and answer session Saturday afternoon, Pallister told the crowd he wanted to tell them "a cute one." "So I'm supposed to be away all the time," he said, smiling.
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".
