The federal government has agreed to cover the entire cost of extending a district heating system to include Iqaluit's aquatic centre, though it's unclear how much money the contribution will be, or how much the city will save in heating costs. Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett was in Nunavut's capital Monday for the announcement, but she said the project is pending a request for proposals, which will then determine how much the project will cost.
Management within Nunavut's court services division says the findings of a toxic workplace investigation may have been a result of "systemic investigator bias." In a formal response to the investigation — which found Nunavut's court services unit is a toxic workplace — management acknowledged the working conditions within the court registries were "less than ideal" and that morale was low, but says there were "a number of methodological failings" to reach the report's conclusion.
The former CEO of the Baffin Fisheries Coalition (BFC) says he never defrauded the company, and is now countersuing the BFC for breach of contract and defamation. Last month, BFC launched a $1.4 million lawsuit against Garth Reid, alleging he was building on his private land in Winterton, N.L., and invoicing the work to BFC, and its subsidiary Niqitaq Fisheries, claiming it was for a project in Pond Inlet, Nunavut.
@MayorMadeleine@CityofIqaluit Good to know. I've gone back and asked anyway, because the City could conceivably average out the remaining 14 days.
I'm also gone for the month of February (Olympics) and am super determined to get a clear cut answer before I leave :)
If the City of Iqaluit expects a lower rate, than it should still be able to come up with an "at least" amount that it will save. If it doesn't get a lower rate, then (presumably) the rate will stay the same.
Can still make that calculation based off the current rate.
@CityofIqaluit It wasn't that the City didn't have its numbers. It's that now that the capital costs for the district heating system extension is covered (QEC nor Iqaluit will have to pay into it), the City expects a lower fuel rate from QEC for heating fuel.
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".
