O Prime Minister Steven

O Prime Minister Steven

Mike McKenna Jr writes a letter in song to Prime Minister Harper. Nothing escapes his attention: Harper’s mistreatment of aboriginal people and veterans, his hatred of science, his destruction of the environment, his cynical dismantling of our democracy, all these and more in a powerful song and a haunting voice.

Mike McKenna is from Cape Breton. You can find more of his songs here.

Harper Hates You

Harper Hates You

KDilla’s thing is “whitewater with a side of hip-hop” but here’s their thing about Harper.

“If you read the news–Harper hates you.

Pay union dues?–Harper hates you.

If you don’t bleed blue–Harper hates you.”

“If you’re old and grey–Harper hates you.

If you’re openly gay–Harper hates you.

Make minimum wage–Harper hates you.”

“If you speak your mind–Harper hates you.

Don’t toe the line?–Harper hates you.

If you’re not his kind–Harper hates you.”

“Whether you grow crops, or maybe don’t vote lots, or if you’re not old stock–Harper hates you.”

Bye-Bye Mr. Harper, Good-bye

Bye-Bye Mr. Harper, Good-bye

“Bye-bye, Mr. Harper, Good-bye, with your psychopathic ways and your evil eye.”

It’s Helen Austin singing recently on Vancouver Island. Another Canadian singer-songwriter tells some plain truths wrapped up in a familiar tune. Sing it loud!

Thanks to our friend Marilyn for sending us the link to Helen’s song.
