Allegations that some auto shops are overbilling ICBC and contributing to the insurer's troubled financial situation are untrue, according to the Automotive Retailers Association. The claim came from MoveUP, the union representing ICBC estimators, which blames the express repair system introduced by the BC Liberals back in 2001 for sending costs soaring. The system allows auto shops to write their own estimates and send them to ICBC for approval.
An iconic element to the skyline of Vancouver's West End has been restored with the help of a massive crane. A 10.7-metre pin oak was hoisted to the top of the Eugenia Place condominium tower, 17 storeys above Beach Avenue, on Wednesday afternoon. The building's original landscape architect was on site for the occasion, as he was when the first tree was lifted up in 1987. "This is about the same size as the original tree that went in."
A self-proclaimed sasquatch tracker is suing the B.C. government in the hopes of proving once and for all that the elusive forest-dwelling ape-men of folklore are real. Todd Standing's lawsuit claims the province, in refusing to recognize the existence of sasquatches, is shirking its duty to manage the wildlife living within its borders. "It blows my mind this species has not been acknowledged yet," Standing told CTV News. "They won't look at the evidence.

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".
