Binding Referendums Forbidden In Canada - Poem by James Bredin

Binding Referendums Forbidden in Canada

If we had propositions like the Americans, what would we like?
Can’t have these changes because our politicians would spike,
But we could at least have binding referendums like the Swiss,
These changes too, our politicians would surely dismiss.

We need to have a plebiscite about our first past the post,
Counting election votes where the loosers quite often win the most,
Should we have Supreme Court appointees elected to that post?
Could we then get judicial reviews where we could actually boast?

Should we rewrite Trudeau’s Charter and make it just for us?
And not let every terrorist in the world, cause a High Court fuss,
If we pulled out of the United Nations would anyone know?
Stand on our own, banned from their Security Council game show.
