The Onoway and District Chamber of Commerce outlined its strategy for the coming years to Lac Ste. Anne County Council during its regular meeting on Jan. 11. "We want to partner for the County for the benefit, really, of county-based, rural business who don't have a voice," said chamber president Ed Gallagher. He explained that the Chamber originally started in 2005 but went dormant for a number of years. It was later revived in 2012 at the request of Onoway Town Council.
Rural communities seem to be put on the back burner when it comes to provincial funding projects. This is probably due to larger cities such as Calgary and Edmonton having higher populations and bigger players. And, for the most part, rural communities have been willing to accept that and even find ways of working around it. But one of the things that governments cannot be cheap on is health care.
Several speakers voiced concerns over an upcoming sand extraction project in Lac Ste. Anne County at a public hearing during a regular County council meeting on Jan. 11. The public hearing was for a bylaw that would rezone four properties, thus allowing the company Wayfinder Proppants to build infrastructure and conduct the extraction of sand, which would be used for fracking. Some concerns raised include a potential lack of consultation and no longer preserving these lands for agricultural use.
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".
