Access to Information
Big Brother federal politicians want to hide a lot of their stuff,
They feel that their constituents already know enough,
They are committed to their party line no matter what,
So if it’s not in the party agenda it’s not worth a lot.
And the Access To Information Act is a complete farce,
Though the information that politicians have is very sparse,
No binding referendums or recalls are ever allowed,
You can’t change things or vote for a senator so feel proud.
Proportional representation is banned for first-past-the-post,
Though combined opposition can have more votes to count but can't boast,
This is the reason why less than half Canadians vote,
Something wrong with the system while those in first-past-the-post gloat.
