Reworking some holiday classics

In the spirit of the holidays, we’ve put a few recent news events to the tune of some of our favourite Christmas songs. We wish all our readers the best of the season, and a very Merry Christmas.

Decter Hirst is gettin’ cranky

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Her housing plans are in the tank-y

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Jim McCrae put forth a motion

Fa la la, la la la, la la la,

Now team council’s peace is broken.

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Meanwhile, Rice proffered some caution:

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

“Watch out Jimmy, what you’re talkin’.”

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

“As past pres of B-R-E-B,”

Fa la la, la la la, la la la,

“Backing builders is unseemly.”

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Oh little town of Angusville

How still we see thee lie.

Your flaxseed plant will not be back —

Sioux Falls has it by and by.

The province says it’s saddened

To see the plant leave town.

But had they worked a little more

It might have stuck around.

The casino ain’t coming

The AMC stopped that.

Instead they dealt with Hemisphere

While Brandon fell flat.

As the Brandon Sun reported

That deal was poorly made.

First Nations will see little cash

Throughout the decade.

Gee, Pat Martin’s taken some heat

For some things he bothered to tweet

“Rat-face whores” he called the Tories

And other things not so sweet.

Oh-ohh, tweets profane and oh so vile,

Calling “Vic”tim Toews a pile.

Pat regrets his nasty tirade

He’s done Twitter for awhile.

Oh come, Premier Gregor,

Stop your reckless spending.

The province is sinking in oceans of red.

Heed fiscal warnings, deficits are noxious.

$107 million, $107 million,

$107 million extra in debt.

“Come” they told us, pa rum pum pum pum.

“We’ve had enough of this,” pa rum pum pum pum.

“The federal government,” pa rum pum pum pum.

“Will have to meet with us,” pa rum pum pum pum,

Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum.

“Hear First Nations,” pa rum pum pum pum.

“When we come.”

Mr. Harper, pa rum pum pum pum.

They’ve marched upon your door, pa rum pum pum pum.

Chief Spence’s hunger strike, pa rum pum pum pum,

Won’t go away, looks like, pa rum pum pum pum,

Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum.

Show them what you stand for, pa rum pum pum pum.

Stay idle no more.

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas

Happy Holidays too.

It seems every year, it’s up for debate.

What some find offensive continues to grate.
