While the provincial government is not supporting adding an increase to the HST, taking it from 13 to 14% on goods and services to be dedicated to municipalities and their infrastructure needs, Northumberland-Quinte West MPP Lou Rinaldi says Premier Kathleen Wynne has said other options will be examined. “We are committed to review other options that help municipalities and that might include further uploads such as roads,” Rinaldi stated in an e-mail.
Northumberland County held a special meeting earlier this month to move forward on construction tenders before Wednesday’s council session rescheduled due to last week’s Association of Municipalities of Ontario annual conference. Among the issues for Wednesday's county council session is a motion that county councillors accept the conceptual site plan and information report on the replacement for the county’s Golden Plough Lodge.
Longtime expansion plans for YMCA Northumberland at the Cobourg Community Centre (CCC) have been quashed. However, a compromise is expected to come to Monday's council meeting with a recently crafted Memorandum of Understanding. The need for more Y space has been chronic for years. After the Y shelved plans to seek infrastructure funding to support the Town of Cobourg's bid for it to construct the new CCC facility which opened in 2011, there has been the expectation the Y would expand there.
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".
