Demand for zero-emission vehicles, or ZEVs, is small in Canada; they account for less than one per cent of total vehicles sales in this country. But one province, Quebec, hopes to change that. Bill 104 is legislation aimed at increasing the number of ZEVs in Quebec in an effort to reduce greenhouse gases and other harmful emissions.
According to a new report published by RethinkX, an independent think tank based in San Francisco, California, car dealerships are set to become extinct within less than a decade. “The report researchers did not look at all the angles,” said John White, Canadian Automobile Dealers Association President and CEO. “I don’t foresee the doom and gloom that these think tanks or experts predict,” White said.
Since it was unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show in 2009 as a 2010 model, the Porsche Panamera four-door sedan has proved a money maker – despite the fact critics initially cursed it for not fitting into Porsche’s traditional sports car lineup. In Canada, the Panamera is a hot commodity. Sales spiked 17.5 per cent from 2011 to 2012. And officials are banking they’ll climb even higher with the face-lifted 2014 Panamera that is greener, longer and stronger than ever before.
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".
