The Auditor General Report 2004


James Bredin

The Auditor General wrote that they were crooks,
Even the RCMP and Via Rail cooked their books,
They’ll have an inquiry into this affair,
Sweep it under the carpet without subpoenas there.

Millions of dollars in commissions she said,
Fictitious paper to cover thievery she read,
Sponsorship projects with artificial invoices,
Contracts with elaborate accounting devices.

Disturbing practices during all those Chrétien years,
While he and Finance Minister both looked on with leers,
Crown corporations in this scheme up to their necks,
Politicians and all those they appoint and select.

This wasn’t just a case of bending the rules,
Their methods were designed to take us all for fools,
But we knew it in the Shawinigan affair,
And we still reelected that Liberal pair.

Just a political scandal they will say,
Call an election we know how and who to pay,
Without set election dates we choose the time and date,
No need for referendums and no need to debate.
