The childhood home of one of Canada's most celebrated prime ministers will soon be demolished to make way for an eight-story development in midtown Toronto. In a report to be presented at Thursday's meeting of the Toronto Preservation Board, staff say although the house at 1984 Yonge St., just north of Davisville Avenue, was Lester B. Pearson's home for the first three years of his life, the building shouldn't be included in the city's Heritage Register.
It appears to be a case of one step forward and two steps back for a Toronto filmmaker who's crowdfunded production money has been missing for months. As CBC Toronto first reported Monday, the money went missing in March, Kelly Showker says, shortly after the end of her Indiegogo campaign, which she launched to pay for a documentary about the ordeal and trial of Mandi Gray, who was sexually assaulted by a fellow York University student in 2015.
Development of the new St. Lawrence Market North building has fallen about two years behind schedule, and costs are on the rise, because of historic objects dug up on the site that date back to the early 1800s, CBC Toronto has learned, including an artifact belonging to the man who invented Canada Dry ginger ale. A city staff update report released late last month pegs the new completion date at 2020, rather than the previous target date in 2018. Coun.
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".
