Lawyers are at the root of corruption in Canada.
Politicians are lawyers;
Judges are lawyers;
Movers and shakers of corporations are lawyers.
Property owners, landlords, are lawyers.
Those who hold the purse strings at banks,
And insurance companies are lawyers.
Trustees of great hospitals are lawyers.
Those we depend on for jobs are lawyers.
Those who design and enact the laws are lawyers;
Those who administer the laws are lawyers.
In short, all the powers that govern our lives are lawyers.
When we cast our ballots to elect a candidate or a party,
We hope this person, this party, will help bring us justice.
We are deceived.
The sad and awful reality is,
Our fate is determined,
Not by an authentic quest for justice,
But by the desires and goals
Of those who control Big Bucks
And special connections:
See you at the club.
Truth is the most powerful weapon on earth,
And villains fear it.
Tell the truth without ceasing,
No matter what anyone else may say or do.
Even the meekest person can tell the truth,
And thus exercise the greatest power.
Truth is our only hope.
