Time for a New Canadian Party

by: Gary Whittaker

It is time for a change. A change in philosophy, a change in the 3 party system. A change in politicians not being held accountable for promises they had no intention of delivering.

I rushed over to my clever lawyer’s office.
“Look at this!” I proclaimed as I burst into his office.
Clever Lawyer said nothing. His client echoed his words with her ruby red lips.
I placed the newspaper on his desk.
“Happy Guy, what are you doing here?” he wanted to know. “We don’t have a meeting.”
“Just look at this headline.” I demanded, ignoring his irritating obsession with minute details. “We should take action immediately.”
