The fall sitting of the Yukon Legislature, which wrapped up on Monday, proved to be a feisty eight weeks with the official opposition rolling up its sleeves and putting the government through its paces. The first anniversary of Premier Sandy Silver's government being sworn in is fast approaching, and the opposition Yukon Party took great delight this fall in often referencing that, while chiding the government for appearing aimless.
The director of Yukon's Wildland Fire Management branch says several changes have been put in place, in response to an internal government audit that found problems with organization and oversight. CBC obtained a copy of the draft audit report, which detailed how the government branch was susceptible to possible theft and mismanagement of funds. According to Mike Etches, director of Wildland Fire Management, the branch has developed a plan, from the audit.
An internal audit of Yukon's Wildland Fire Management branch has found deep problems with organization and oversight, making it susceptible to "possible theft and misappropriation of funds." In other words, fuel and gear could be routinely stolen, and there's no way to know. The 39-page draft report, obtained by CBC News, covers the 2016-17 fiscal year and was carried out by the government's internal audit services.

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".
