The first protest organized by a group called SOS Vanier called on the Salvation Army to be more transparent about its proposal to build a shelter on Montreal Road, and to let people voice their concerns. On Tuesday evening the protesters carried signs calling for the mayor, the city and Salvation Army to reconsider the location and scale of the multipurpose centre. They were also protesting a meeting between the Salvation Army and condo residents that was closed to the public.
The school bus driver badly injured in last Thursday's crash with a crane remains in critical but stable condition in hospital, and her family says there's been a strong outpouring of support from the community. On the day of the crash, Beverly McCartney heard there had been an incident involving a 70-year-old woman driving a school bus. She was glued to her television and thought the description matched her sister, who'd grown up the middle child in a family of nine.
Residents and business owners in Vanier are organizing against a proposed Salvation Army shelter after two community meetings draw over 1,000 people. The second community meeting organized by Coun. Mathieu Fleury drew more than 500 people at the Knights of Columbus on McArthur Avenue on Friday. More than 300 people attended Monday's meeting and hundreds were turned away.
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".
