Why No Referendums...


Why are we not allowed to have binding referendums now?
Why is death-with-dignity denied all Canadians somehow?
And they say that the Province of Quebec may have it next year,
Could we go to Quebec and get it too or is this too weird?

Is our appointed Supreme Court the only opposition?
Was the Sue Rodriguez case, the ultimate in their ambition?
Why do Canadians seldom bother to vote in elections?
Why are our politicians so reluctant to make the corrections?

Can we do anything about the Ottawa Senate scandals?
Was the money actually stolen by outerspace vandals?
Am I asking too many questions and should I just shut up?
Is the appointed Senate great or is this a total screwup?
