A Christmas Poem for Proportional Representation

All I Want For Christmas Is Proportional RepresentationHello & Season’s Greetings,

On behalf of the Board of Fair Vote Canada Waterloo Region Chapter, I would like to extend our very best wishes to you and yours for a joyful & safe holiday season.

Here is a little holiday cheer which we hope you will enjoy. This wonderful poem came from Ann Remnant in Alberta.

Oh Liberal MP, oh Liberal dear

Pull up a chair and lend me your ear.

My tale is short, I won’t keep you long

Just a wee ask to fix a big wrong.

Twas not long ago Trudeau made clear

FPTP had had its last year.

The people cheered and voted in trust

that Trudeau’s Liberals would fix the unjust.

The committee studied, all summer through

With a survey, emails, and many a backyard do.

A PR system was the favoured choice

of committee experts and the peoples’ voice.

So, quite shocking it was to hear Trudeau say

Hey! ‘Canadians actually think I’m okay’

Then, Monsef to a room full of PR support!

“There’s no consensus” I regret to report.

It’s truly awesome to be a Liberal MP devoting yourself to the entire country.

Pardon, I do not intend to insult or provoke

But, be wary, your power depends on our vote.

The time is short and the task is great

To keep the promise our PM did state.

Please give thought, ‘mid the season’s jollity

To how you will fix our democracy.

All the best!
