TSXV

3. Organigram Holdings (TSXV:OGI)

Organigram has been a steady LP in the path many cannabis producers have faced. Along with many others, the volatility of the market has taken this stock for a roller-coaster ride in 2018.

Khiron is the first Colombian-based cannabis company to launch its public shares on a Canadian exchange. Khiron seeks to establish a presence in the Latin American cannabis market and has been able to access the newly unveiled Mexican one.

“Investors now are also saying that the Canadian market is a bit oversaturated and that there’s opportunities to grow elsewhere,”Alvaro Torres, president and CEO of Khiron said. “If you look at Colombia, [it] is like taking a time machine [back] to five years ago where Canada was.”

Despite its public launch near the halfway mark of the year, Khiron was able to grow 20.34 percent in value during 2018.

1. Aleafia Health (TSXV:ALEF)

TSX

3. HEXO (TSX:HEXO)

HEXO shocked the cannabis industry when it secured a partnership with Molson Coors Brewing (NYSE:TAP;TSX:TAP) for the development of cannabis infused beverages. The deal will see both companies participate in a joint venture called Truss. Edibles and infused products are expected to become legal in Canada in 2019.

The company still face turbulence during the year as a large shareholder issued a public letter requesting for the company to evaluate making decisions to bring the company on par with the upper echelon of Canadian LPs. HEXO issued a response and even indicated it will pursue a US-based listing, similar to fellow LPs.

HEXO managed to increase its value in the market by 15.21 percent during 2018.

2. Canopy Growth (TSX:WEED,NYSE:CGC)

Canopy continued to make strides in 2018 as one of the leading Canadian LPs. The company expanded with a network of assets in Latin America and even created an investing subsidiary in Canopy Rivers (TSXV:RIV).

The biggest move for the company in 2018 was when Constellation Brands (NYSE:STZ), its alcohol producing partner, doubled down and put a second investment in the cannabis producer, this time worth approximately C$ 5 billion.

Canopy netted a rise in value to its shares of 32.34 percent.

1. Cronos Group (TSX:CRON,NASDAQ:CRON)

Cronos continued its growing path in 2018 and, while it took a hit after short sellers when after the company, the Canadian producer became the first LP to list in the US through a senior listing. The move was followed then by a collection of other LPs.

However, Cronos’ biggest stride in the year came when it confirmed it had obtained a coveted partnership and investment deal with Altria Group (NYSE:MO). Mike Gorenstein, CEO of Cronos, said the money from Altria would be used to “expand our global infrastructure and distribution footprint, while also increasing investments in [research and development] R&D and brands that resonate with our consumers.”

Shareholders of Cronos enjoyed a late push to the stock and saw a full year-to-date gain of 47.89 percent.

Base Metals Weekly Round-Up: Outlooks, Plans and Strikes

In the news this week, we look back on the big stories of the year and explore sentiments on the year to come in the world of copper.

In macro news from around the world, China’s economy has reportedly slowed due to the ongoing effects of the trade war, in Europe, all eyes are still on the UK and its shambolic Brexit process, while in the US the Mueller investigation is still taking oxygen away from the Trump administration.

Back in the land of commodities, copper gained value of this week; starting on Monday (December 10) at US$ 6,110 a tonne and reaching US$ 6,196 a tonne by Thursday (December 13), representing a 1.4 percent increase.

Zinc didn’t move too far this week, dipping to US$ 2,663 from its starting point of US$ 2,676, and reaching US$ 2,684 a tonne by Thursday, making for almost negligible movement percentage-wise.

Its fellow base metal, nickel moved slightly further but not by much, posting a 0.6 percent gain in the LME to reach US$ 10,795.

Base metals top news stories

This week in base metals news: we published copper outlooks for 2019, BHP (ASX:BHP,NYSE:BHP,LSE:BLT) has big news, and Codelco waves away concerns over workers striking at Chuquicamata.

1. Looking to 2019 in Copper

This week the Investing News Network (INN) published two stories detailing the thoughts and feelings of those who know the copper space best: CEO’s of copper-focused companies, and analysts that live and breathe commodity markets.

In our CEO outlook article, six company leaders share their thoughts, and the general vibe is that copper companies are optimistic for the next 12 months, even if the last 12 weren’t anything to write home about.

Analysts were optimistic too, though with the bad news (sorry) that the investing world is stuck with the trade war for the foreseeable future. Continued growth in copper demand, coupled with a slim pipeline of new projects to replace depleted mines means that analysts predict an increase in value for the red metal though, trade war or no.

2. BHP Clears Yet Another Hurdle in Race to Nickel Supremacy

Mining giant BHP has taken another step towards its goal of being a major player in the battery metals space, with the company reportedly given the green light to go ahead with developing a mine at its Venus nickel deposit in Western Australia.

The Venus deposit is one of multiple targets identified by BHP in August as having the potential to feed into its battery metals ambitions.

The company said that the Western Australian government’s blessing to go ahead with the mine meant it had all the necessary approvals, and it would now being working on access routes to the site for full-scale operations.

3. Codelco: Chuquicamata Unaffected by Disgruntled Unions

Chilean state miner Codelco has said that its Chuquicamata copper mine is operating as normal despite reports that unionized workers there have downed tools and are blocking access as of Thursday (December 13).

A company spokesperson told Reuters that the protests were not getting in the way of day to day operations at the mine, located in the Antofagasta region.

In a release on Wednesday (December 12), three unions operating at the mine announced that they had run out of patience with Codelco in regards to healthcare provided to workers, restructuring at the mine as it transitions to underground operations and the potential for job losses as a result.

In other base metals news

In other news, the northern Queensland city of Townsville is set to reap the benefits of a AU$ 300-million expansion to the Sun Metals zinc refinery there, creating 350 jobs during construction and 100 permanent positions when works are complete.

In more news from Australia, there was a flourish of pomp and circumstance in South Australia as GFG Alliance announced it planned to construct the largest steel plant in the western world in the small iron-focused city of Whyalla.

Mount Gibson Iron (ASX:MGX) released an update on its waterlogged Koolan Island project in Western Australia, announcing that the de-watering process for the mine was now 60-percent complete and on track for an early 2019 return to operations. The seaside (and undersea) mine has been sitting idle since 2014 when its seawall failed, flooding the main pit.

In North America, Canadian company EMX Royalty (TSXV:EMX) announced recently that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Australian BHP spin-off South32 (ASX:S32) that covers exploration for copper and other base metals in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.

More news from the Democratic Republic of Congo’s (DRC) Gecamines, which this week announced it would be increasing its stake in its Boss Mining JV with ENRC Africa Holdings after a renegotiation of terms between the two companies. Boss Mining exported 17,000 tonnes of copper in H1 2018, and under the new terms will be 49-percent owned by Gecamines, up from 30 percent.

Meanwhile, BHP has had its plans to sell its smallest copper mine in Chile fall through after the buyer, private equity firm EMR Capital backed out. BHP had announced the plans to sell the mine in June, and the deal was expected to close during this quarter.

Finally, staying in South America, media outlets are reporting that Vale (NYSE:VALE) has purchased a technology firm with expertise in improving production of higher-grade iron ore, supposedly pointing to a potential move by the company to take full control of the Samarco JV, which it shares with BHP.

Step-out Drilling Confirms New Discovery East of Canada Cobalt’s Castle Mine

Canada Cobalt Works Inc. (TSXV:CCW) (OTC:CCWOF) (Frankfurt:4T9B) (the “Company” or “Canada Cobalt”) is pleased to announce that two widely-spaced drill holes have intersected an apparent syenite hosted gold system with nearby cobalt potential in a previously undrilled area of the Castle Property near Gowganda, a past producing high-grade silver camp approximately 75 kilometers from Kirkland Lake. Meanwhile, underground drilling on the first level of the Castle mine, 1.5 kilometers west-northwest of the new discovery, has continued to identify cobalt-silver-rich vein structures occasionally also mineralized with gold and nickel.

Highlights:

  • An expanded drill program east of the mine continues and is targeting high-grade gold zones, associated with a newly-discovered major fault structure, in addition to potential cobalt-silver vein networks below the Archean sulphides;
  • A new drill hole (CS-18-17, the fifth of this 2018 exploratory program) has just commenced and is designed to expand the system by intersecting gold mineralization parallel to hole CS-18-16 and above a fault that appears to have provided a pathway for mineralizing fluids;
  • Canada Cobalt is preparing to commence a second, expanded phase of underground drilling through an amended advanced exploration permit – the Company eagerly anticipates providing shareholders with a major batch of Phase 1 underground drill results in the near future following receipt and interpretation of all data.

Castle East Discovery

Doug Robinson, Canada Cobalt’s consulting geologist, commented: “The Archean rocks at Gowganda have never been systematically explored as previous work in the area focused on exploiting the silver-rich Nipissing diabase while bypassing the cobalt. Drill holes CS-18-15, CS-18-16 and CS-18-16-W (wedge hole) east of the mine are a very important breakthrough and now have us seriously investigating an apparent gold system with appropriate sulphide and quartz veining in association with a major fault that may be the controlling fault for the zones we’ve encountered. Oriented core drilling will allow us to identify critical sub-horizontal and sub-vertical structures associated with this fault and the IP anomalies we’re drilling into.”

Robinson added, “We’re also in a fertile environment for the discovery of classic cobalt-silver mineralization near zones of weakness at depth below the Archean sulphides in Nipissing diabase.”

Drill Holes CS-18-16 And CS-18-16-W

Following up on CS-18-15 (see October 24, 2018, news release), drill hole CS-18-16 was collared 112 meters to the northwest and was drilled in the opposite direction toward the south. CS-18-16 intersected much more quartz veining in several broad mineralized zones containing moderate to strongly disseminated pyrite (often associated with gold in the district) and occasional traces of chalcopyrite. Multiple alteration styles included green carbonate, sericite and fuchsite. This hole encountered a fault at a vertical depth of approximately 200 meters. A 37-meter zone of extensive multi-generational quartz veining with abundant fine-grained plus blebby pyrite and traces of chalcopyrite was intersected immediately below the fault in a wedge hole (CS-16-W).

Canada Cobalt eagerly anticipates assay results from a large number of samples from CS-18-15, CS-18-16 and CS-16-W.

Underground Program Update

Phase 1 drilling on the first level of the Castle mine has been completed but winterizing as well as engineering studies through Wood continue. Expanded Phase 2 drilling is scheduled to commence early in the New Year which will also allow for receipt of all assays and interpretation of Phase 1 results. Visual analysis of subsequent holes drilled since initial results were released, which included 7 meters @ 2.3% cobalt (core length), supports Canada Cobalt’s geological model that vein structures untouched by first-level mining in the 1980’s are enriched with cobalt as well as silver, with massive cobalt and native silver also encountered.

The technical information in this news release was prepared under the supervision of Frank J. Basa, P.Eng., Canada Cobalt’s President and Chief Executive Officer, who is a member of Professional Engineers Ontario and a qualified person in accordance with National Instrument 43-101.

About Canada Cobalt Works Inc.

Canada Cobalt is a pure play cobalt company focused on its past producing Castle mine in the Northern Ontario Cobalt Camp, Canada’s most prolific cobalt district. With underground access at Castle, a recently installed pilot plant to produce cobalt-rich gravity concentrates on site, and a proprietary hydrometallurgical process known as Re-2OX for the creation of technical grade cobalt sulphate as well as nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) formulations, Canada Cobalt is strategically positioned to become a vertically integrated North American leader in cobalt extraction and recovery.

Bitcoin Price Tumbles Further: New Low for the Coin

Bitcoin Price

Bitcoin price is tumbling further today, dashing any hopes of a rally that some felt was certain thanks to current extreme oversold conditions.

The world’s largest coin by market cap is currently selling for $ 3,301.60 USD according to coinmarketcap.com. But earlier today, it fell to $ 3,200, representing a 15-month low for Bitcoin and not helping bulls’ hopes for a revival.

This is the lowest level since September 2017.

Green Relief to Acquire Majority Ownership of Bodhi Research

Green Relief Inc., Canada’s leading licensed producer of medical cannabis using aquaponics as a growing method, today announced it has entered a share purchase agreement for a majority stake of Bodhi Research & Development Inc. (“Bodhi Research”).

Under the share purchase agreement, Green Relief has acquired 51 per cent of the outstanding common stock in Bodhi Research in exchange for Green Relief shares. Bodhi Research will be renamed Green Relief Innovations, and will acquire the company’s intellectual property and patent-pending nutraceutical product to treat symptoms of concussion.

The agreement provides Bodhi Research shareholders with the ability to divest the remaining 49 per cent of their shares to Green Relief over a six-year period.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Jha and his colleagues to the Green Relief family,” says Warren Bravo, Chief Executive Officer, Green Relief Inc. “With its unparalleled expertise in cannabis-based R&D and clinical trials, the team at Bodhi Research will be integral to growing our research and development arm, and establishing an innovative suite of cannabis-based medical products to serve a growing nutraceutical market.”

Dr. Jha, who is reputed internationally for specializing in concussions, head, and spine injuries, has committed to continuing to lead research and development at Green Relief Innovations, and operate as Chairman and CEO for a five-year period. Additionally, Dr. Jha will serve as a member of Green Relief’s board of directors.

Dr. Jha has organized international conferences, founded peer reviewed journals, chaired white papers, worked with the various professional sports leagues and sat on various boards.  He has been a constant presence in the media from Sportsnet to HBO.

“Both the team at Bodhi Research and Green Relief share a common purpose of bringing innovative, cannabis-based nutraceuticals – and eventually pharmaceuticals – to the global health and wellness marketplace,” Dr. Jha says. “Together, we will work to develop products that will not only target priority medical conditions, but also provide patients with more choices to enhance their health and well-being, thus establishing Green Relief as a globally trusted household brand for medicinal cannabis.

“We joined the team at Green Relief as it has demonstrated a strong commitment to health and wellness, and has entrusted us to develop a suite of products that are clinically tested and rooted in science.”

Dr. Jha and his team have conducted clinical trials that support the efficacy of cannabinoids in managing concussions. Subsequent to the completion of an additional trial, and its ongoing patent application, Green Relief Innovations will look at launching a nutraceutical for the treatment of concussion symptoms.

“As a medically focused licensed producer, we couldn’t be happier with this agreement,” Bravo says. “Not only will Green Relief Innovations play a key role in helping patients improve their quality of life, it will also advance the science behind medical cannabis through research that raises the profile of the many benefits of cannabinoid therapy.”

About Green Relief
Based in Hamilton, Ont., Green Relief is Canada’s leading licensed producer of medical cannabis using aquaponics to sustainably grow its plants. Aquaponics is a closed-loop system that combines aquaculture (raising fish) with hydroponics (the soilless cultivation of plants). As a result, aquaponics uses up to 90 per cent less water than conventional agriculture, while also producing 10 times the crop yield per hectare, and an end product free from synthetic fertilizers and harmful pesticides. Additionally, once the system’s fish reach market size, Green Relief donates the protein source to a food rescue service that delivers meals to those in need. Over the last three years, Green Relief has donated more than 40,000 fish through this initiative. At Green Relief, the mission is simple: helping patients improve their quality of life while also being environmentally responsible, and giving back to the community. Green Relief is a privately held company with plans to go public in early 2019.

About Bodhi Research
Bodhi Research and Development Inc. is an Ontario-based research company founded by Dr. Neilank K. Jha, a Toronto-based neurosurgeon. Bodhi Research conducts research trials that explore the use of cannabis in the treatment of concussions and post-concussive syndromes. This research has been completed in collaboration with some of the world’s foremost experts in concussions and pain management.

About Dr. Neilank K. Jha MD, MSc, MBA
Dr. Jha holds his medical degree, neurosurgical training and spine fellowship from McMaster University and the University of Toronto.  He holds MSc and MBA degrees from the London School of Economics and Ivey Business School, respectively. He is a practising neurosurgeon and founded Bodhi Research in 2016. Upon closing of the share purchase agreement with Green Relief, Dr. Jha will be appointed as Chairman and CEO of Green Relief Innovations.

Precious Metals Weekly Round-Up: Gold Falls on Firm US Dollar

Gold and silver prices declined on Friday (December 14) on the back of a strengthened greenback, which was supported by investors shifting their focus towards the expected US interest rate hike next week.

As of 9:20 a.m. EST, the yellow metal was trading at US$ 1,233.70 per ounce and on track for its biggest weekly decline in five weeks. As for the white metal, it was down 1.39 percent on Friday, sitting at US$ 14.49 per ounce as of 9:21 a.m. EST.

There is some downward pressure from a stronger dollar, said Vandana Bharti, assistant vice-president of commodity research, SMC Comtrade. “I don’t see much downside on gold going forward…the market is waiting for a strong trigger and currently it’s watching out for the Fed meeting.”

The Federal Reserve is expected to raise interest rates during its two-day meeting next Tuesday (December 18) and Wednesday (December 19). This will be the fourth rate hike for 2018, although more investor focus will surround the policy outlook for next year, which there is more uncertainty over.

“Market sentiment towards zero-yielding gold is at risk of souring ahead of the Fed meeting next week where interest rates are expected to be hiked. However, with the Fed potentially taking a pause on rate hikes next year, gold remains somewhat supported,” said Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst at FXTM.

“The near-term outlook for gold hangs on the dollar performance… Bulls remain safe above the US$ 1,240 support level with US$ 1,250.60 acting as a level of interest,” Otunuga added.

Lower interest rates reduce the cost of holding gold and silver and puts pressure on the US dollar.

As for the other precious metals, platinum was down 1.13 percent and as of 10:02 a.m. EST, it was trading at US$ 784.00 per ounce. For its part, palladium was down 2.33 percent for the week and as of 10:05 a.m. EST, the precious metal was trading at US$ 1,217.00 per ounce.

Precious metals top news stories

Our top precious metals stories this week feature a 2019 gold outlook report from the Investing News Network (INN), Southern Gold (ASX:SAU) going alone on development at the Cannon gold mine and our round-up of the top TSX-listed silver stocks of 2018.

1. Gold Outlook 2019: Waiting for the Fed to Blink

The price of gold has sunk almost 5 percent in 2018, and did not live up to many market watchers’ predictions. In Q3, the yellow metal dipped below the US$ 1,200-per-ounce mark and spent a significant amount of time circling that price range.

Geopolitical concerns, consistent interest rate hikes and a rallying US dollar have kept prices down throughout the year. As of Friday (December 7), gold was trading at US$ 1,249.40.

With the start of 2019 just around the corner, many investors are now wondering what will happen to gold next year. Here, the INN looks back at gold’s price performance in 2018 and what analysts expect from the yellow metal in 2019.

2. Southern Gold Flies Solo on Cannon Gold Mine Development

Southern Gold will make a solo attempt on advancing the development of the Cannon gold mine in Australia, the company announced on Monday (December 10).

The miner revealed that Northern Star Resources (ASX:NST) has chosen not to exercise the right-to-mine with Southern Gold that it acquired in March through a deal with Westgold Resources (ASX:WGX).

In a new agreement between Northern Star and Southern Gold, the latter will accept a transfer of the mining lease for the Georges Reward deposit, immediately to the north of Cannon, from Northern Star.

“The execution of this agreement with Northern Star is an important development. It enables Southern Gold to move forward with the asset where there is considerable value to be unlocked by a small underground mining operation,” said Southern Gold Managing Director Simon Mitchell.

3. Best Silver Stocks of 2018 on the TSX

Like its counterpart gold, silver has seen rocky price action throughout 2018.

However, despite those struggles, some silver companies still managed to make progress and expand the resource potential of their assets. As the year comes to a close, INN has rounded up the best silver stocks on the TSX by share price performance so far this year. 

Here are the top 3 stocks of 2018 on the TSX:

1. SSR Mining (TSX:SSRM,NASDAQ:SSRM)
2. Maya Gold & Silver (TSX:MYA)
3. Sierra Metals (TSX:SMT)

All year-to-date and share price information was obtained on December 10, 2018 from TradingView. All companies listed had market caps above C$ 50 million at that time.

Also in the news

Also making news this week is Paulson & Co winning control of Detour Gold’s (TSX:DGC) board.

On Thursday (December 13), Paulson & Co. convinced the miner’s shareholders to overthrow the bulk of the company’s board of directors, including its interim CEO, ending a volatile six-month proxy battle.

Five of the Paulson-backed nominees were chosen, while Detour Chairman Alex Morrison and interim CEO Michael Kenyon were removed from the board during the special shareholders’ meeting.

Additionally, James Gowans was appointed the Chairman of Detour Gold’s board of directors.

Gowans commented on the results, stating, “[w]ith the distraction of the proxy contest now behind us, I welcome our new directors and look forward to working with them to recruit a new CEO and build value for all shareholders. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the outgoing board members for their service and dedication to Detour Gold and wish them success in their future endeavours.”

Following the results, John Paulson, founder of Paulson & CO, stated, “[w]e support Detour Gold’s new board of directors and believe that our investment is now in the capable hands of experienced, independent and professional directors.”

Finally, on Friday (December 14), the president of South Africa’s Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) said that the union’s Sibanye-Stillwater (NYSE:SBGL,JSE:SGL) members will remain on strike, calling the miner’s argument that the action is now illegal false.

Joseph Mathunjwa was speaking at a media conference which was organized to respond to the miner’s decision to extend a wage agreement in place with a number of other unions to AMCU members. The AMCU claimed that this move was put into place so that the strike would no longer be protected.

“As far as we are concerned, we are still on strike,” Mathunjwa said, adding the union has seen no documentation suggesting the strike is now illegal.

“We… advise our members not to report to work on Saturday as they are still in a protected strike until their demands have been met by the employer,” he added.

For its part, Sibanye’s CEO, Neal Froneman commented on the extended wage agreement, stating, “[t]he safety and wellbeing of all Sibanye–Stillwater employees and their families is our first priority and management has been concerned about the timing of the strike and the financial hardships that employees who have been on strike, or not at work, will suffer due to the “no work, no pay” principle, which still applies.

“I urge all employees to report for work, and only for those who need it, to apply for the cash advance. We understand the financial challenges facing many of our employees at this time, and would like to have some comfort that all of our employees and their families are able to enjoy a safe and peaceful holiday period together,” he added.

Apollo 11 strike ceremony held in Philadelphia

There was a first strike ceremony yesterday (Dec. 13) at the Philadelphia Mint.

Being struck with the appropriate fanfare were the new coins honoring the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Sales of the new coins will begin on the Mint’s website Jan. 24, which is almost six months before the actual anniversary date of July 20.

However, the coins can’t come soon enough as far as collectors are concerned.

They are excited.

They have good reason to be.

All four coins will be cupped like the 2014 baseball coins.

The footprint on the moon is on the inwardly curved side while Buzz Aldrin’s visor design is on the rounded side.

The visual impact of the designs is amazing, especially on the 5-ounce silver coin.

Mint Director David J. Ryder formally struck a coin at the ceremony.

What will be offered to collectors are proof and uncirculated versions of a $ 5 gold piece, silver dollar and clad half dollar.

As a bonus, there will also be a 5-ounce proof silver dollar that will be offered.

This is the first five-ounce coin that will have a proof finish, reeded edge and be cupped.

Surcharges on each piece will be $ 35, $ 10, $ 5, and $ 50, respectively.

To help boost sales, the Mint plans to issue a special two-piece half dollar set. Mintage will be limited to 100,000.

Featured in the set will be a 2019 commemorative half dollar and a clad 2019 John F. Kennedy enhanced reverse proof half dollar.

A household order limit of five will be in effect for this special set.

Obviously, the Mint is bracing for an onslaught of orders.

Artist Gary Cooper designed the common obverse of the commemoratives.

The Mint describes it this way: The obverse design features the inscriptions “MERCURY,” “GEMINI,” and “APOLLO,” separated by phases of the Moon, and a footprint on the lunar surface, which together represent the efforts of the United States space program leading up to the first manned Moon landing. Additional inscriptions include “2019,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “LIBERTY.”

The reverse design features a representation of a close-up of the famous “Buzz Aldrin on the Moon” photograph taken July 20, 1969, that shows just the visor and part of the helmet of astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

The reflection in Buzz Aldrin’s helmet includes astronaut Neil Armstrong, the United States flag, and the lunar module.

Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” the denomination, and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”

The obverse was engraved by Joseph Menna. The reverse was designed and engraved by Phebe Hemphill.

Half of the total surcharge income is authorized to be paid to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s “Destination Moon” exhibit; one quarter will go to the Astronauts Memorial Foundation and one quarter to the Astronauts Scholarship Foundation.

My only wish is that I could have been present for the ceremony.

Unfortunately for me, it did not work out.
