  Trans Mountain tree cutting can resume as stop-work order on pipeline route lifts CALGARY — A federal regulator has lifted a stop-work order on tree cutting and grass mowing along the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project route. Trans Mountain has now submitted a satisfactory plan to correct deficiencies in the oversight of its contractors that could pose threats to nesting birds, the Canada Energy Regulator said Tuesday in a statement. The regulator, which enforces safety and environmental guidelines for pipeline projects, issued a stop-work order on June 3 following investigations of tree-clearing work in the suburban Vancouver area that could have impacted nesting birds.

OTTAWA — Green Leader Annamie Paul sought Thursday to frame a legal challenge from her own party as the work of a "small group" of outgoing executives, as she tries to push past the turmoil still roiling the Greens in the shadow of a looming federal election.

Backed by sign-toting supporters at her campaign office ribbon cutting in downtown Toronto, Paul said the court action was not sanctioned by federal council — the Greens' main governing body.

"This was not a decision of our council. This was a decision of a small group that did not seek the approval of council for their decision," she said.

New Brunswick proposes solution to open Atlantic bubble and end border blockade

  New Brunswick proposes solution to open Atlantic bubble and end border blockade HALIFAX — A meeting of the four Atlantic premiers Wednesday afternoon ended with officials from Nova Scotia set to consider a proposal from New Brunswick to end a blockade of the Trans-Canada Highway by protesters angry at Nova Scotia's COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Hollywood and Television, owned by the throne of Britain, Vatican, Rothschild, bankers and various occult societies, have lied to the general public again and again over many generations. What do powerful Hollywood (British) elites have over their stable of Illuminati minions? Is one of the "sacrifices" for their stars, the spaying and neutering of their pets? Trans -gendering has been a Royal Ritual. Evil Brits on top of the Social Pyramid dole out fame and fortune. It has been this way for hundreds of years.

Breaking boundaries . Since then, he has been working with “all of these amazing high-end brands and super-cool magazines from all around the world”. He has presented for Haider Ackermann, Balmain, Proenza Schouler, Alexander McQueen – and Vuitton, again, of course – and graced the covers of Dazed, Vogue Ukraine and GQ Espana. He is the first trans male to ever be on the cover of L’Uomo Vogue in its 50-year history. And he still walks for womenswear: “I want to break gender boundaries . I do want to help people realise that you can wear what you want, regardless of gender.”

The party submitted court filings Wednesday that aim to overturn arbitration orders to cancel a non-confidence vote against Paul by the council. The notice of application also seeks to resume a review of Paul's membership in the Greens that would lead to her suspension from the party, but that the arbitrator froze.

Two senior party sources say several federal council members found out about the lawsuit only after party president Liana Canton Cusmano sent an email, obtained by The Canadian Press, to party members Wednesday afternoon.

The submissions in Ontario Superior Court ended a brief ceasefire between Paul and party brass, though Paul took issue with any depiction of "infighting" and said a coterie of councillors whose terms will expire in under a month are behind the court manoeuvre.

Feeling seen: Mj Rodriguez on historic Emmy nod for ‘Pose’

  Feeling seen: Mj Rodriguez on historic Emmy nod for ‘Pose’ Learning of her historic Emmy nomination, Mj Rodriguez of “Pose” had one overwhelming feeling: “I felt so seen.” “I felt represented and I felt seen,” said Rodriguez, who scored the first major acting Emmy nod for a trans performer. “And more accepted than I have felt in a long time. I felt like my colleagues now see me, my acting colleagues see me, and the people who are surrounded by the arts see me, and how much I want to give the world the love to my craft and my art.

Although there is no dearth of broke Brooklyn girls on the big and small screens, none looks and sounds quite like Desiree Akhavan. The 30-year-old filmmaker wrote, directed and stars in. The 30-year-old filmmaker wrote, directed and stars in "Appropriate Behavior"--out Jan. 16--about a bisexual New Yorker trying to make love and work for herself. Akhavan also has a recurring role on season four of HBO's Girls. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the Iranian-American said, "I love comedy, and I love dark comedy."

The move, permitted by a recent law signed by Democratic California Governor Gavin Newsom in January, is now reportedly opposed by prison workers, mainly female officers. Speaking to KTXL television in Sacramento, an officer said she and her colleagues were not “comfortable” with the changes. “You’re ordered to go strip out this inmate in a secure room… it takes your power away,” she said, adding: “Where’s the boundaries ? Boundaries are gone.”

“I am not feuding with anyone," she told reporters outside her new office at the heart of Toronto's Church and Wellesley neighbourhood.

"There is no infighting going on. This is really a one-sided attack that is focusing attention where it shouldn’t be."

Paul declined to speak further to the legal proceeding that revives the threat to her leadership, seeking to refocus attention on party priorities such as climate change, housing affordability and drug policies.

She did not directly address why she moved to stop a non-confidence vote slated for last Tuesday if only a handful of party brass opposed her.

Paul, who was elected leader in October but has no seat in the House of Commons, expressed optimism at her prospects in the Toronto Centre riding despite two losses there in the past two years and the party's recent revocation of $250,000 in funding that had been earmarked for her campaign.

Inside Hollywood's Billionaire Donor Class and David Geffen's $150 Million Gift to Yale

  Inside Hollywood's Billionaire Donor Class and David Geffen's $150 Million Gift to Yale Some Hollywood stars make a lot of money, like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson who made $87.5 million in 2020. But only a handful of entertainment industry figures rank as billionaires, able like David Geffen to donate $150 million to Yale Drama School so it could go tuition-free in perpetuity. In fact, industry watchers say that most well-known performers and celebrities leverage their fame and influence to get other people to donate money, rather than giving huge amounts from their own bank accounts. That leaves the biggest personal gifts to those who have built their fortunes on the business side.

Hollywood ’s female-focused reboots require women to relive men’s stories — and to fix their politics, too. When the female “Ghostbusters” remake hit theaters in 2016, aggrieved fans of the original regarded the new film as a kind of narrative murder, committed by a cabal of Hollywood moguls and humorless feminists.Credit Hopper Stone/Columbia Pictures. There is a slight moral miscalculation here: that in order for a film to be considered feminist, it has to show women fighting men, and not each other.

“There’s no question that having support from the central party would help," she said, but insisted momentum is growing as she canvasses the area daily.

The Greens aim to furnish a candidate in all 338 ridings if an election is called, Paul said, adding that the nominees are far more diverse than in past elections. The party has nominated about 55 candidates so far.

In Wednesday's legal application, the party along with the Green Party of Canada Fund say an arbitrator exceeded his authority in requiring party executives to cancel their non-confidence vote against Paul as well as a review of her party membership.

The documents state that Paul's employment contract was with the Green fund, a separate legal entity that controls the party purse strings, rather than with the party proper or its federal council. The arbitrator "erred in law" because he had no authority to impose orders on an entity that is unconnected with Paul's contract, the filings argue.

'Real Husbands of Hollywood' Revival Starring Kevin Hart Ordered at BET+

  'Real Husbands of Hollywood' Revival Starring Kevin Hart Ordered at BET+ Kevin Hart's "Real Husbands of Hollywood" is getting a six-episode revival series at BET+, the streaming service said Thursday. The original "Real Husbands of Hollywood" was created by Hart, Chris Spencer and Ralph R. Farquhar in 2012 based on a sketch on performed at the BET Awards. The show, which ran for five seasons on BET from 2013 to 2016, followed the daily lives of Kevin and other celebrities, each playing a fictionalized version of themselves, as they venture through their surreal life in Hollywood.

Despite that distinction, multiple sources say it was federal council rather than the fund that voted not to renew the contract of senior Paul adviser Noah Zatzman.

The decision came after Zatzman made comments on social media in response to Green MPs' posts on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, stirring up controversy in May that culminated in Green MP Jenica Atwin defecting to the Liberals.

The sources spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss matters not public.

Paul mulled the possibility that the next slate of party executives could be equally recalcitrant when council turns over on Aug. 19 following elections.

"I’m not taking anything for granted at all," she said. "I’m assuming good will, that people that are running for our council are seeking to do so in the best interest of our party."

Paul came in second to Liberal Marci Ien in a Toronto Centre byelection last fall — they earned about 33 per cent and 42 per cent of the vote respectively — to replace former finance minister Bill Morneau in the riding.

The Liberal stronghold has been held by the party since 1993 and has been won by prominent Grits including Bill Graham and Bob Rae.

Toronto Centre encompasses wealthy neighbourhoods as well as some of the most disadvantaged in Canada, with a gentrified Cabbagetown butting up against shelters, payday lenders and Regent Park and St. James Town.

Paul came in fourth place when she ran there in the 2019 general election.

There are now two Green MPs in Parliament, including former leader Elizabeth May.

The party has been riven by power struggles and factionalism for months as Paul attempts to steer the Greens in a new direction.

Since October, Paul has steered the party toward more socially progressive ground that encroaches directly on NDP turf, calling for a guaranteed livable income, universal pharmacare and free post-secondary education.

She has also reiterated her call for a national housing strategy, decriminalization of drug possession coupled with safe supply programs, and ending the ban on blood donation by men who have sex with men.
