"Harper is their kissing cousin. After scrapping the gun registry, he made the unholy link between gun ownership and personal security. Which leads by a direct route to more guns, the likelihood of more lethal violence, and sometimes to vigilante justice." Prime Minister Trudeau, you had better ride to the rescue on gun control. After all, it was one of the 223 things you promised to do in 2015.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau pose for a selfie with young students as they take part in the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit and Gala in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2017. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Sean KilpatrickIt is International Women’s Day and my question is this: is the sun rising or setting on the greatest social movement of all time? If you are female and live in the United States, it looks like sundown.
Kim Dong Trump is at it again. At a crucial point in NAFTA renegotiations, the master of high-grade, media-catching BS socked the world in the nose again. This time it was the announcement of punishing tariffs on steel and aluminum coming into the United States — 25 per cent on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum. That was bad news for a lot of countries, but a kick in the maple leaves for Canada. This country accounts for 16 per cent of steel imported by the US and 40 per cent of the aluminum.

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".
