The application for a rare type of peace bond against accused "sleepwatcher" Barry Sinclair will move forward, after a provincial court judge rejected a request to toss it out Friday morning. Last month, Sinclair's lawyer Ellen O'Gorman had asked for a directed verdict in the matter involving her client. O'Gorman questioned whether the RNC's fears of Sinclair committing a future break and enter with voyeurism met the test for the type of peace bond sought by police.
A St. John's car dealership and a director of the company are being accused of tax evasion and making false and deceptive statements on tax returns. The Canada Revenue Agency has filed charges under the Income Tax Act and Excise Tax Act against Cabot Ford Lincoln Sales Limited and Frank Clarke. The charges relate to tax years from 2009 to 2011. In court documents, CRA alleges that the company overstated expenses by more than $240,000 to evade taxes exceeding $44,000 over that time frame.
The province does not appear to be hurrying hard to complete the often delayed Team Gushue Highway extension. Only a quarter of the work was done on a $15.6-million paving contract over the past fiscal year, the Department of Transportation indicated in response to an access-to-information request. That tender was advertised a year ago, and awarded last April. It will see the Team Gushue Highway extension paved from Kenmount Road to Topsail Road, and associated connections.
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".
