James Bredin (1933 / Ennis Canada)
A YEARLY PRIME MINISTER... APRIL 20TH,2013
A different prime minister should be appointed each year,
He/she should be an already elected provincial premier,
This could avoid party politicians selecting their own,
Even now, we can’t vote for them by name because it’s not shown.
Senators and Supreme Court judges should also be elected,
In order to establish that Canadians are protected,
From biased weird decisions made by questionable appointees,
Whose words are law and they don’t ever have to appease.
Mandatory set-date elections and compulsory voting too,
Could sidetrack a lot of expensive Ottawa hullabaloo,
A simple system of binding referendums should be formed,
So that all the people and politicians could stay reformed.
