Winnipeg’s firefighters union and CAA are warning people about leaving their kids and pets unattended in vehicles in warmer temperatures. This comes after a viral video of a British Columbia mother being scolded by a police officer after leaving her two children in a hot vehicle for 20 minutes. CAA Manitoba said it has received around 150 calls of children and pets being left in hot vehicles across the province every year. "That's pretty high,” said Erika Miller with CAA Manitoba.
Emotions ran high Tuesday evening, as friends and family paused to remember 21-year-old Christine Wood. A sacred ceremony was held in the ditch where Wood's body was found last Thursday in the R.M. of Springfield.

The family said the reality is painful, but they are glad their daughter has been found.
A house fire in La Salle, Man. has caused around half a million dollars in damage, according to the R.M. of Macdonald Fire Department. Fire Chief Mike Siemens said a homeowner was tending to burning leaves in his backyard Wednesday afternoon when the flames from the fire caught on to his deck. The blaze quickly made its way from to the house that it is attached to. The homeowner, an adult man, received burns to his upper body. Siemens said the fire is not suspicious in nature.
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".
