Ottawa aristocrats are really reluctant to change,
They have it already made so why bother to arrange,
So no binding referendums or death-with-dignity for you,
We need some good political leadership but who knew?
Then there’s the Supreme Court who told Sue Rodriguez where to go,
Dying in pain with Lou Gehrig’s disease and feeling very low,
As Canadians we are helplessly captured by these events,
We can’t elect a senator and don’t know what he represents.
Canadians need a compulsory voting law to be involved,
Even then only half the political problem will be solved,
We need an elected Senate and elected Supreme Court,
And we need the political leadership to get us that support.
