Ms Wynne... Apr 4th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

Dear Liberal Premier of Ontario Ms Kathleen Wynne,
Please make death-with-dignity a provincial issue so we too can win,
Because the Ottawa elites seem to be hiding from this matter,
Appointed judges, senators and politicians too involved in chatter.

They told Sue Rodriguez with Lou Gehrig’s disease that she should die,
I never did figure out their logic for this or the reason why,
They have it in Washington and Oregon so why not here?
And you have lots of guts as far as I can see and hear.

Of course this subject and issue is hidden most of the time,
Especially in Ottawa where the establishment feels sublime,
But Pauline, premier of Quebec might have it installed, I hear,
Many seniors, waiting to die, would think of you as endeared.
