The Liberal government claims to be dedicated to improving the quality of life for all Canadians — but their latest proposal to reform tax laws are unlikely to do so. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been touting his new tax reform plans as of late. He was recently in British Columbia, attempting to curry favour amongst his constituents and discussing how proposed changes to the small business tax regime will benefit all citizens.
The Calgary Airport Authority has found itself in the middle of an unlikely controversy — over accessible parking stalls. It all started when a family with special-access needs arrived at the airport and sought out an accessible parking space. On their previous visits to the airport, they knew that these stalls were to be earmarked for people with special needs, and they knew where they were to be located. Much to their surprise, however, their usual spaces were nowhere to be found.
It may surprise you to know that, the province created new penalties to up the fine for first-time offenders. Starting June 1, your first offence for distracted driving will come at the hefty price of $543. A second offence will set you back $888 and a third more than $3,000. If you happen to be a particularly slow learner, then you'll be looking at a whopping $15,000.00 for your 10th offence. These fines are no joke. But the fines aren't the end of it.
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".
