A blog to give a voice to our concern about the continued erosion of our democratic processes not only within the House of Commons and within our electoral system but also throughout our society. Here you will find articles about the current problems within our parliamentary democracy, about actions both good and bad by our elected representatives, about possible solutions, opinions and debate about the state of democracy in Canada, and about our roles/responsibilities as democratic citizens. We invite your thoughtful and polite comments upon our posts and ask those who wish to post longer articles or share ideas on this subject to submit them for inclusion as a guest post.

Poetic Reality

I had a guest post scheduled for today but the final text has not shown up yet. I did however receive this little offering from a regular corespondent. Enjoy!

If I were rich in silver and gold
Oil I would not need
Con's in Ottawa having a fit
Lost revenue, gained in greed.
If fair they were from day one
Not lie to we they "serve"
Promises kept, when first "to power"
Soon turned to bunch of nerds.
Police need to police and do their job
But Ottawa always to intervene
Great white father that guides the crew
Living his own private dream.
Bubble to burst, and when it does
Voters then to see
What they voted into office
Never, a Con voter I be.
