The Petrolia Library is a building that’s hard to miss – the red brick building with circular turrets on each end and a tower in the middle came to life in 1903 and originally housed the train station. Inside was a ticket office, waiting rooms, an operator’s desk and baggage room. The unique building served as Petrolia’s train station until 1937. In May of that year, it officially opened as Petrolia’s Public Library, leased to the town by the Canadian National Railway for an annual fee of $125.
The Town of Petrolia was selected as the 2017 winner of the Public Works Project of the Year by the Ontario Public Works Association. They are being recognized for their Mandaumin Reservoir replacement project, a multi-million dollar upgrade that saw two glass fused bolted steel water storage tanks installed. The new tanks replaced a single concrete reservoir that had been in use for over 50 years, supplying water to the town of Petrolia, Enniskillen Township, Dawn-Euphemia and Oil Springs.
The Town of Petrolia has secured a grant worth $24,750 from the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund to go towards a feasibility study at Victoria Hall. At their first meeting of the New Year, council approved a motion to move $25,000 previously approved for the study in the 2017 budget to the 2018 Capital Budget. This amount will match the required 50 per cent of funding for the study.
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".
