Helicopter training company wants contract to guarantee it can operate in national... When federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna recently announced plans to move forward with a national park reserve, she made a point of praising Penticton-based HNZ Topflight and ensuring the helicopter training school has continued access.
Greg Norton, a long-time opponent of a national park reserve in the South Okanagan, says he remains skeptical that governments will give his side a fair hearing. Norton, who speaks for the Grassland Park Review Coaltion (GPRC), an informal group that has opposed the park for the past 15 years, said officials contacted his group before the Oct. 27 announcement to give them a heads up. “They made lots of promises about having input and transparency,” Norton said. “We’re very skeptical.
The recent announcement of a national park reserve in the South Okanagan has sparked a mix of jubilation, anxiety and anger, and few are more aware of that than MP Richard Cannings. Cannings, the NDP federal MP for South Okanagan-West Kootenay, says he’s received numerous calls and emails from people on all sides of the debate and he’s been trying to answer as many questions as he can. “I think misinformation thrives in an area of lack of information,” he said.
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".
