Canadian Information Access May 15th,2011 - Poem by James Bredin

Our High Court ruled that access to information doesn’t count,
So much for democracy where no one can be held to account,
Because government legislation means nothing to these appointees,
Dressed up like a sitting group of Santa Clauses if you please.

Hidden bureaucrats with secret papers are therefore a fact,
We don’t know who they are or what they do, so we can’t interact,
Is there something going on up there that we should know?
Is this the same crowd that allowed abortion clinics to overflow?

We need binding referendums and death with dignity soon,
We need proportional representation at the first opportune,
We need someone in charge to tell us where we’re eventually going,
And tell the High Court that politicians rule so take up sewing.
