A contentious dispute over water towers is one step closer to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). “It’s too bad we have to go the way we do, but I don’t think there’s another way to resolve the dispute,” said Sarnia city Coun. Andy Bruziewicz, who also chairs the Lambton Area Water Supply System (LAWSS) board of directors.
The rising cost of electricity in Ontario is having a substantial effect on hospital budgets. Documents obtained by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation show electricity bills have been on the rise at hospitals across Ontario over the last five years, most increasing 20-50 per cent in that time. In Sarnia-Lambton, Bluewater Health’s bill is up just over 40 per cent between 2012 and 2016, jumping $850,000 over that span to just under $3 million per year.
Lambton College paramedic student Jade Flay has been biding her time, reading her textbooks and trying to stay up to date over the last few weeks. She’s ready to go back to school. “I’m so excited,” she said Sunday, hours before Queen’s Park passed back-to-work legislation, ending a strike that’s seen 500,000 students at 24 Ontario colleges out of class since Oct. 15.
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".
