    Election Blanche in Ward 19

    Remember when the NDP
    Was all about diversity?
    Now I am ashamed to see
    It’s all about heredity.

  2. SUCH A PARCEL OF ROGUES T’WAS THAT ORGANIZATION!

    Farewell to Ward 16 fame
    Farewell our old glory
    Farewell even to the name
    So famed in municipal story
    Now Stintz runs over the Official Plan
    And Tall Buildings tower over the horizion
    To mark where Miller’s province stands-
    Such a parcel of rogues in an organization!

    What force or guile could not subdue
    Through many troubled stages
    Is wrought now by an elected few
    For parties, suits and speeches.
    A councillor’s arrogance we disdained
    Secure in honest condemnation;
    But developer’s funds have been our bane-
    Such a parcel of rogues in one organization!

    If only we had seen the day
    That blind ambition could sell us,
    My cool head would remain
    With Sewell and loyal Jacobs!
    But with Mills in Ward 16, till the last hour
    I will make this declaration :-
    ‘We were bought and sold for developer’s gold’-
    T’WAS SUCH A PARCEL OF ROGUES IN THAT ORGANIZATION!
