COULD THIS BE TRUE … DEC 11TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Could our senators be unemployed if we abolish that place?
Do we have the power to do that and would it be a disgrace?
Can you name something good that the Senate might have done?
Why were they appointed till they’re seventy five - everyone?


Could our appointed Supreme Court, just refuse to let this happen?
And even write their high handed command in legal Latin?
And are we allowed to change the Constitution by ourselves alone?
I can almost hear the Ottawa hierarchy letting out a groan.


We are talking extremely elite high handed blue-blood stuff,
Even if they were only appointed; that is surely enough,
Is this something like Trudeau’s Charter except different?
Would the Queen have to sign it or is that relevant?
