WE CAN'T TELL THEM WHAT TO DO ….               OCT 19TH, 2014
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Time flies; things happen; words are often said behind closed doors,
If death-with-dignity was dropped; proper politicians might score,
One annoying subject which of course, the religious seem to despise,
And religious folk are holy and forbidden to tell lies.

Therefore subjects they avoid are never brought up for discussion,
Therefore death-with-dignity will never cause political repercussion,
Because Quebec has death-with-dignity, doesn't mean, we should foo,
But if we had a referendum; the opposition would be seen as only a few.

Could I move to Quebec to get my death-with-dignity rights?
In order to avoid a painful terrible death in the middle of the night,
Unfortunately our politicians will not allow referendums in any way,
Because we might tell them, what to do and therefore what to say.

JAILS FOR PROFIT
BY
James Bredin

If the Americans can have jails for profit, why can't we?
Is there any way we could get our politicians to agree?
Because it is extremely expensive to keep a man in jail,
And there must be a cheaper way to do it in great detail.

Why do we call them correctional facilities instead of jails
Is it our early release system, the good food or our easy bails?
Is there something we need to know to improve our organization?
The huge expense, the overcrowding without an explanation.

Why is this subject so shunned by our comfortable politicians?
Unfortunately we have Trudeau’s Charter and soft conditions,
Without referendums or recall so nothing will be done,
That and no death with dignity and nothing can be won.

WE HAVE PRIDE …        OCT 15TH, 2014
BY
JAMES BREDIN


Our religious types want to rule the roost for ever and ever,
They are part of the establishment and think they are quite clever,
Therefore death with dignity will never never be allowed,
Not for the Ontario or the other Canadian crowd.


But Quebec has already passed a death-with-dignity law,
They also have referendums and do not think that this is a flaw,
But somehow; on this issue, we seem to be stuck in no-man's land,
And our Ottawa establishment seems to think that this is grand.


We need a change to the Charter or maybe the rules of the road,
They don't want to understand us; its as if we speak in code,
We need someone with a very loud voice on our side,
Because we know we are right and we know we have pride.

A MISSION ... OCT 14TH, 2014

A FIERCE HOLY MISSION ….     OCT 14TH, 2014
BY
JAMES BREDIN


A planned peaceful painless death would be a good way to die,
But there are many opponents to this idea and I don't know why,
Though they write page after page trying to explain,
And it makes sense to them; though it won't go into my brain.


Religious enthusiasts have their own reasons and think they're right,
Their enthusiasm strikes me that this issue is not in their sight,
Because everlasting hell and punishment does not make sense to me,
Of course I know that there is no way in hell that they will agree.


So I think we should relax and slowly get back to reality,
Realize we should change death-with-dignity legality,
If Quebec can do it, we can do it; despite the opposition,
Though they behave as if they are on a fierce holy mission.

ARE WE OUT OF LUCK?      OCT 13TH, 2014
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Can our Supreme Court finally decide what is right about death?
Change the Sue Rodriguez decision and have no regret?
Let Canadians die with the assistance of doctors in our last breath?
So we can adapt to reality just like they did in Quebec.

Those on death's door should not be deprived of our right to die,
Gather family and friends; pray or say the final goodbyes in style,
Though this not a pleasant thought; its better than compulsion,
Because an unpleasant death can be a cause of revulsion.

Half the European countries and four US states have it now,
The result of referendums which they have but we're not allowed,
And we have no recall of weird politicians; so we are stuck,
Do we need changes to our Charter or are we out of luck?

WE HAVE NO INFLUENCE … OCT 12TH, 2014
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Our high-up politicians seem to think that they are right,
Therefore death-with-dignity will be kept out of sight,
And binding referendums might be considered a national sin,
This idea has to be kept hidden so that they continue to win.


There comes a time in each one of our lives when we will die,
The real problem here is that we don't know where when or why,
And our  establishment wants to keep things the way they are,
No referendums; no death with dignity because thats too far.


Quebec may have solved this problem but we are not allowed,
They have death-with-dignity, referendums and they talk in French out loud,
Maybe we should change our ways but how do we do that?
And why is this issue hidden and so difficult to get at?

THINGS COULD CHANGE … Oct 10th, 2014

BY
JAMES BREDIN


Less than half Canadians find it necessary to vote,

Politicians like this so they never mention it or take note,

Because they were elected by a very small minority,

No compulsory voting will come under their authority.


So other proposed changes can be swept under the rug,

And in City Hall or the Commons; they can look quite smug,

Definitely no referendums will ever be allowed,

Though they can be used by that strange Quebec crowd.


And their death with dignity will never be allowed here,

Our old seniors have to stay; they're not allowed to just disappear,

Because Sue Rodriguez with Lou Gehrig's disease was banned,

No death with dignity for her and the High Court thought it was grand.
