Rookie (1933 / Ennis Canada)

What's going on in Ottawa?

Those binding referendums that the Swiss seem to have nailed down,
It’s enough for some Canadians to feel like a clown,
Because Canadians are forbidden to have this type of change,
The establishment and politicians think of this as too strange.

This subject is also hidden and gets no media reportage,
We have Trudeau’s Charter so therefore there is no shortage,
And Canadians are not required to vote so who really cares?
There is also recall which we are totally unawares.

But how do we get politicians to pay attention to what we need?
Like binding referendums and recall and we should be agreed.
How do we get mandatory voting where those who don’t, get fined?
The lack of action from Ottawa just cannot be defined.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
