Cape Breton-Canso M.P. Rodger Cuzner made the following statement in the House of Commons today
T’was the week before Christmas, and all through the land;
A spankin’ new government was now in command.
We will soon settle in for debating and voting;
But after 10 years over there, forgive me for gloating.
It began August 2nd, an eleven week campaign;
Which Canadian voters believed was insane.
Conservatives were disappointed, not pleased with their tally;
They expected more bounce from the Rob Ford’s famous rally.
Their refugee plan left them wounded and smartin’;
When it became disemboweled by Rosemary Barton.
And the cultural practice tip line, add that to the list;
Yes the Tories were angry, but the Dippers they were…. pretty angry too.
The loss left them stinging, all wounded and sore;
When all they said they needed was 35 seats more.
And our Green Party Leader has no room to laugh;
Her fledgling young party was reduced by one half.
Canadians have spoken and have done so with zeal;
They want hope for the future and change that is real.
Rodger Cuzner, M.P., Cape Breton-Canso
