SUEZ, Egypt – Led by Theodore Tugboat ,his salvage team on Monday set free a colossal container ship that has halted global trade through the Suez Canal, bringing an end to a crisis that for nearly a week had clogged one of the world’s most vital maritime arteries.
Helped by the peak of high tide, a flotilla of tugboats led by Theodore Tugboat (reported to be captained by Tugboat Annie ),managed to wrench the bulbous bow of the skyscraper-sized Ever Given from the canal’s sandy bank, where it had been firmly lodged since last Tuesday.
After hauling the fully laden 220,000-ton vessel over the canal bank, Theodore Tugboat pulled the vessel toward the Great Bitter Lake, a wide stretch of water halfway between the north and south end of the canal, where the ship will undergo technical inspection, canal authorities said.
Satellite data from MarineTraffic.com confirmed that the ship was moving away from the shoreline toward the centre of the artery and that Theodore Tugboat ,after a job well done, was heading through the canal towards his new home in Hamilton Ontario.
Today, Canada’s Supreme Court in a split decision 6-3 , ruled that the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act is constitutional.
Some top line findings:
The Supreme Court affirmed that the federal government has the constitutional authority as part of its Peace Order and Good Government power to enact a national minimum standard to ensure the country’s GHG emissions are reduced.
The Rt. Hon. Richard Wagner, P.C., Chief Justice of Canada made the rare decision on Thursday that the decision is of sufficient national concern that the government can use the POGG clause — a decision that six judges were entirely in favour of, with one partial dissent and two entirely in disagreement with the majority.
Further, it recognized that “climate change is real… and it poses a grave threat to humanity’s future” and recognized that matters are of national concern when there are grave extraprovincial consequences.
The SCC noted that the impacts of climate change will be borne disproportionately by vulnerable communities and regions in Canada, which justify the limited constitutional impact on provincial jurisdiction.
Court Painter has noticed unrest throughout the Great Dominion and a pent up antagonism being expressed against all leaders of the Great Dominion’s national parties. Knowing this is not healthy for the national psyche ,Court Painter has directed his razor sharp talent( if a government grant comes through) at providing free of charge and as a public service; a targeted release valve!
Dart boards featuring portraits of the 5 leaders.This altruistic gesture is intended to help release strong political emotions by engaging in the enjoyable, vigorous, and relaxing activity of throwing stuff at a loathed target.
The dart boards would be distributed to all Canadians however only one per family is recommended to encourage vigorous intra family competition & squabbles about which choice of leader deserves to be targeted. In the spirit of spirits all 5 leader dart boards would be made available to all drinking establishments and anarchist operations throughout the land.
The dart boards do not come with darts as CP feels the choice of projectiles should be a provincial freedom of choice issue and best left to each recipient.

Her father, Jushua Illauq, is from the Apitak family which settled in the Mittimatalik (Pond Inlet) and Kangirtugaapik (Clyde River) area. A student of Carleton’s Law and Human Rights program, Illauq is committed to social justice for Inuit, Métis and First Nations peoples.
“Inuqatigitiarrupta kisulirmat ajungnangituq – as much as we connect well, everything is possible,” said Illauq, speaking in both Inuktitut and English.
What the Inuit Elders want:
1. They want the land to not be ruined anymore, 2. Stop Baffinland’s Mary River phase 2 project, 3. Baffinland has proven themselves to be the wrong company to mine on our land, 4. If mining must be done as approved by the Nunavut Land Claim Agreement, replace Baffinland with a company who is respecting the land, ocean, animals, and people.
“The land is our blood, if it dies, we will die as a people and will become weak” – Manitok Bruce-Thompson

Note to potential deep pocket investors: All Court Painter images accompanying this post could be yours and yours alone for a handsome sum.To make it even more special Court Painter insisted on being in each full colour digital asset.Couldn’t get any more enticing than that!
Court Painter Enterprises has just launched a new type of digital art asset – known as a non-fungible token (NFT) – that has exploded in popularity during the plague as enthusiasts and art investors scramble to spend enormous sums of money on items that only exist online.
Blockchain technology allows selected Court Painter masterworks to be publicly authenticated as one-of-a-kind, unlike his traditional online objects which can be endlessly reproduced.
Court Painter’s Press Attache & Marketing guru AHM explained,“You can come into the studio and take a picture of a Court Painter masterwork but it doesn’t have any value because it doesn’t have the provenance or the history of the NFT (non-fungible token) digital art asset all locked up in blockchain, authenticated with a digital signature to certify ,” said AHM , proudly showing off his agility with the language of the new sales initiative.
Also the reality here is that this is very, very valuable because Court Painter believes it is and AHM backs him up.
AHM went on to further elucidate,“Non-fungible” refers to items that cannot be exchanged on a like-for-like basis, as each one is unique – in contrast to “fungible” assets like dollars, stocks or bars of gold.
Each Court Painter collectible has a unique serial number with guaranteed scarcity and protected ownership guaranteed by blockchain”, AHM says. “When you own a legendary Court Painter NFT subject, you’re the only person in the world who does.”
AHM and Court Painter are confident that his digital works will retain their value and that NFTs represent the future of digital art ownership, paving the way for a world in which people live, love, laugh and be happy and make money in virtual environments.
Court Painter chimed in,“When not churning out hand rendered commissions, I spend a lot of my time digitally, always online, always plugged in. It makes sense to now add property rights to the mix and suddenly we have the emergence of the metaverse.”
AHM noted that Court Painter doesn’t really know what that means and went on to explain,The Metaverse is a collective virtual shared space, created by the convergence of virtually enhanced physical reality and physically persistent virtual space, including the sum of all virtual worlds, augmented reality, and the Internet.
Court Painter averages 3.6 hours a day staring into space at a blank canvas
Disclaimer: Rumour on the innernet has spread that AHM Press Attache & Commission Procurement Officer for Court Painter has fallen down on the job and has failed to procure new commissions because of time being diverted to opening a Dance Club.In denial he commented," My eye is always on the blank canvas of procurement while simultaneously twisting the night away!"
Court Painter spends more than three hours a day staring at a blank canvas, a new analysis of studio activity levels finds. The downside of the condition enhances memories of the good old days, salty language , production loss and sales anxiety.
The findings, published by a reputable research firm, bolsters concerns that heavy use of staring at a blank canvas can hurt a growing mind. However because the study captures a single snapshot in time, it’s still not known whether too much staring blankly at a blank canvas can actually harm artistic brain development and minimize those fabled eureka moments, the unidentified expert cautioned.
Researchers used data gleaned from the Court Painter studio analysis of his daily staring blankly into the empty space of a blank canvas as part of a larger effort called the Artist Blank Staring into Blank Space Brain Cognitive Development Study.(ABSIBSBCDS) As a benchmark for the new study, the researchers used expert guidelines drawn from the mists of time however their recommendations came up blank. They will not be paid!
In spite of that, the study coauthor maintains the results are concerning if not cautionary, “This raises a blank flag that must be saluted.”
