CANADIAN REFERENDUMS PLEASE , , , FEB 25TH,2013
Canadian binding referendums are completely forbidden,
Our peaceful politicians don't want to be overridden,
Just like death-with-dignity - it's all disallowed forever,
And the Ottawa elites; think that they are quite clever.
So nothing is allowed to change in the tranquil Ottawa air,
No proportional representation and they don't seem to care,
No compulsory voting rules because it might cause change,
The appointed Ottawa elites can't tolerate something strange.
And appointed senators can stay till they're seventy-five,
Cushy job and no one is sure if they are even alive,
Amid left-wing UN international policies in stone,
In Afghanistan or Mali and we're not allowed to postpone.
