How To Unite Canada - Poem by James Bredin

There are those who think that our Canada has everything right,
And the mention of separatism in Quebec is a fright,
But every now and then the issue becomes front and center,
And out of the woodwork comes one or two Quebecois dissenters.

We need to show the Quebecois that we mean what we say,
Democracy is important to counteract separatist play,
In order to emphasize this we have to sit down and plan change,
Unfortunately our present politicians think this is strange.

Our prime minister should be a different premier each year,
So no politician can turn the position into a career,
The Swiss with binding referendums have true democracy,
A way to counteract our present appointed aristocracy.
