Less Than Half Of Us Vote... Feb 17th,2014 - Poem by James Bredin


They changed the law about voting but they never changed much,
They called the new law, Bill 23 but they were in no rush,
Compulsory voting is still not in and was never brought up,
And no one could mention that anything might be corrupt.

Canadians have elections but we really don’t need to vote,
That’s why less than half of us vote and the others are on remote,
They insist that if you don’t vote; everything is still great,
And no referendums, medical assisted death and no debate.

Canadians are not allowed to schedule their own deaths,
The Supreme Court said we can’t decide when to take our last breath,
And for some unknown reason; these decisions can’t be changed,
Not mentioned in Trudeau’s Charter so it can’t be rearranged.
