Today, we stand for democracy.
We march in peaceful protest to send a message to you who claim to lead us, be you blue, red or orange.
The message: This shall not stand.
We raise our voices today to remind you that you serve at our leisure, not your own, nor the Queen’s.
You have been sent forth to uphold our values, the build a just society, to build a vibrant economy and to stand for peace and honour.
You’re power flows from us alone, so listen well to our voices, all of you.
Put aside your petty squabbles. You have been told to work together, and so you must.
You discard our votes, you ignore our wishes, you play your games with the checks and balances of power.
But you will not discard the traditions of centuries, traditions for which endless blood has been split.
We march today as defenders of the traditions you cast aside, of reason and debate, of parliament, the foundations upon which democracy, Canadian democracy, is built.
Our small but great northern nation has achieved so much through being guided by reason and tradition.
Reason and tradition led us, like almost no other nation, to freedom without war or bloodshed. Let us have these concepts restored to rule our democracy once more.
For be warned, though we grow weary of your games, do not bread apathy amongst us. Do not dare to use our cycniscm and weariness against us or we will cast you aside and wash the slate clean!
vive le Canda!
vive la Démocratie!
