No Death With Dignity... Sept 18th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

At times I think our wheels are spinning on Ottawa ice,
While our appointees and bureaucrats think everything is nice,
But you are not allowed to vote for your prime minister by name,
The political parties do it so you are not in on this game.

In nineteen ninety two, Sue Rodriguez got the Supreme-Court word,
She had no right to die with Lou Gehrig’s disease - absurd,
And now Pauline, premier of Quebec, has drafted Bill 52,
Is anyone in Ottawa listening as they refused to put DWD through?

It seems as though our politicians are hiding from this subject,
They don’t want to talk about it and thoroughly disconnect,
Switzerland and four US states have DWD now,
So why do our Ottawa authorities refuse to allow?
