(Hear this set to music at 8:12)
We’ve said good-bye to the month of August,
Construction turning out a little less sawdust,
Will Northlands plan be left to all-rust?
Olympic women did us proud.
Loved the festivals from Folk to Fringe,
Kids voting at 16 makes some cringe,
NDP power policy came unhinged,
Gene Wilder, loved by many.
Should the city fence the off-leash park?
Did the river need a Noah’s Ark?
Transit planning still in the dark.
Mel Hurtig, a proud Canadian.
Postal workers fighting for pensions
Got a deal after 2 extensions.
Alberta deficit viewed with apprehensions.
Are the cards stacked against Jason Kenny?
To China we saw the Prime Minister go,
Canola was a tough row to hoe.
Nuit Blanche – would you like to go?
Free tickets for Rogers Place.
Photo radar protests grew
Back to school shopping, the thing to do,
The NEB their hearings withdrew.
And that’s what happened in August.
