The Scandal of all Scandals
Has the political tide turned on Liberals yet?
Are they banking that the people might just forget?
Sweep away Sheila Fraserís shocking indictment,
And if they tell more lies weíll forget the excitement.
Paul served as finance minister without sweat,
Forgot that six hundred billion dollar national debt,
Plus that billion dollars they sent straight to Quebec,
And the HRDC missing billion and no check.
And that billion dollars blown on the gun registry botch,
Canít stop criminals but kick hunters in the crotch,
Appointed ethics and RCMP said Shawinigan okay,
Appointments that depended on what they say for their pay.
They closed down the APEC and the Somalia inquiries,
To hide the conspiracies all hidden in diaries,
Refused evidence Ďcause subpoenas not allowed,
Tainted blood scandal of Krever Report screamed aloud.
Canadians get five minutes every five years to vote,
Thatís not to change things - no thatís distant and remote,
No referendums or recall for these politicians,
No proportional representation in their traditions.
