James Bredin (1933 / Ennis Canada)
The ability to compel our politicians to go,
Provincial or federal and leave without any dough,
Dangerous meatheads at the top of our political pile,
Therefore we need binding referendums to do it in style.
But our politicians will do anything to stop this proposal,
Claiming this type of action is not at our disposal,
So we need to change some laws and maybe the constitution,
This idea could be a fantastic Canadian solution.
We have to get control of Canada with recall and referendums,
Not listening to various politicians having political tantrums,
Maybe proportional representation might also help,
I can almost hear the bought party members as they scream and yelp.
