OTTAWA IS BUSY... APRIL 16TH,2013
OTTAWAIS BUSY … APRIL 16TH,2013
The Ottawa establishment is very busy; so take care,
No death-with-dignity for you or me so we better beware,
The Supreme Court denied Sue Rodriguez a long time ago,
Like most Canadians; you probably didn’t even know.
Binding referendums and proportional representation are banned,
By these Ottawa appointees who say all is good in this great land,
Is it possible the Liberals under Justin might win the next election?
Is it possible that death-with-dignity could be a connection?
It’s doubtful because MP Justin is part of the Ottawa elite,
But it would be great if he mentioned it while being discreet,
Even if he said it should be part of a provincial health plan.
He could then show that he is a real Ottawa front man.
