The Day Ontario Died (again)

Originally posted July 2014.  In light of Wynne’s Throne Speech today, we thought it appropriate to repost this song as more Ontarians hit the road for greener (much greener) pastures.  We went to New Brunswick and we encourage anyone who can, to come on out and join us.  There is a Canada outside of that Liberal cesspool.

(To the tune of American Pie by Don McLean) (Lyrics by Quixotes Last Stand)

A long, long time ago
I can still remember how this province used to make me smile
And I knew if the liars had their chance
That they would make those unions dance
And maybe they’d be happy for a while

But 2014 made me shiver
With every paper I’d deliver
More scandals on the doorstep
I couldn’t take one more step

I can’t remember if I cried
When I read about that Liberal tide
But something touched me deep inside
The day, Ontario died

We started singin’ bye-bye, to Ontario pride
Went to look for a job, but the listings were dry
And companies were fleeing to the American side
Saying “Hydro rates are way too high”
“Hydro rates are way too high.”

Did you vote for the Liberal gang
And did you sell your soul for the bell they rang?
‘Cause Sid Ryan told you so?
Now do you believe in welfare dole?
Can Wynne save your tortured soul
And can she teach us how to bleed, real slow?

Well we knew the mood would soon turn grim
When they built those turbines on such a whim.
The Liberals kicked off their shoes
To the rural folks they gave the screws.

Now the younger ones couldn’t make a buck
So they moved out west in a pickup truck
And we knew we were out of luck
The day Ontario died

We were singin’ bye-bye, to Ontario pride
Thoughts of what we had makes you want to cry
And the OPP are on the criminals side
Saying, “Liberals don’t have to comply.”
“Liberals don’t have to comply.”

For twelve years we’ve been on our own
And the thought of Wynne just makes us groan.
But that’s not how it used to be
When we stood and said “McGuinty come clean.”
With the thoughts of what might have been.
And the voices that came from you and me

Oh, then while we all were looking down
The Liar ran off with his thorny crown
The Legislature was adjourned
No verdict was returned

And while Wynne reigned over Queen’s Park
Faist left the hard drives without a mark
And we sang dirges in the dark
The day the Ontario died

We started singin’ bye-bye, to Ontario pride
Went to look for a job, but the listings were dry
And companies were fleeing to the American side
Saying “We have no choice. It’s all gone awry.”
“We have no choice. It’s all gone awry.”

Helter Skelter in a summer swelter,
The birds flew into a wind propeller
500 feet high and falling fast
They landed dead on the grass
Struggling families had reached an impasse

With Chiarelli on the sidelines, the jackass

Now the election air was sweet perfume
While the province played a hopeful tune
We all got up to dance
Oh, but we never got the chance

When the taxpayers tried to take the field
The union leaders refused to yield
Do you recall what was the deal
The day Ontario died?

We were singin’ bye-bye, to Ontario pride
Went to look for a job, but the listings were dry
And companies were fleeing to the American side
Saying “We can’t afford to stay, good-bye”
“We can’t afford to stay, good-bye.”

And there we were all in one place
A population lost in space
With no time left to start again
So come on, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Jack Flash sat on a candlestick
‘Cause liberals are the Devil’s only friends

And as I watched her on the stage
My hands were clenched in fists of rage
No angel born in Hell
Could break that Satan’s spell

And as the flames climbed high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite
I saw Satan laughing with delight
The day Ontario died

She was singin’ “Bye-bye to Ontario pride
Forget what you once had, it was one hell of a ride.
Did you really believe I would not tell a lie?”
Singin’, this is the day Ontario died.

I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just sobbed and turned away

I went down to the corner store
Where I’d heard the music years before
But the man there said the music wouldn’t play

And in the streets, the children screamed
The seniors cried and the poor ones dreamed
From Wynne not a word was spoken
The promises all were broken

And the one thing I admired most
This great province is now a ghost
So we caught the last train for the coast
The day Ontario died

We were singin’ bye-bye to the Ontario sky
We tried to save you, but the Liberals were sly
And union thugs were shoveling lies knee-high
Saying “This is the day democracy dies
“This is the day Ontario dies”

We all were singin’ bye-bye to Ontario pride
We tried to save you but the Liberals were sly
And union thugs were shoveling lies knee-high
Saying, “This is the day democracy died.”

    More lies today.
    8% off electric bills as they put the cap in trade gas tax in place at 4.5 cents per litre to pay for it. Gas tax goes to finance more wind turbines and higher e rates as we pay our US competitors to take wind power off our hands.
    Net result of chasing McGuinty’s green ideology is the financial ruin of Ontario.

      Time for you and your whole family to get out of there Greg.
