JUSTIN: PAY ATTENTION ... MAR 17TH,2013


JUSTIN PAY ATTENTION … Mar 17th,2013
By
JAMES BREDIN


Justin: are you listening or are you like the others - well hidden?
Are your Liberal friends listening or is this still forbidden?
Think death-with-dignity or proportional representation;
Think referendums, no appointed Senate and our agitation.




You might make it if you pay attention to this advice,
Changes and new national ideas - that's the political price,
Try to remember the Sue Rodriguez High-Court decision,
When she was told, she had to die with their legal precision.




Because the Ottawa elites view these changes with distain,
And with these ideas they just form a committee and abstain,
So, to get the Liberal Party back out of the woods once more,
You need these new ideas you wont continue to bore.
