Oh!

I wish I lived in Quebec today

where the sun smiles brightly

upon a favoured land

in which the sick and the well

can walk proudly side by side

 

Oh!

I wish I lived in Quebec today

to tell all my children

Yes!  I once did live there

with good men and strong who worked

a good deed and did that deed well

 

Oh!

I wish I lived in Quebec today

where pride reigns in splendour

where men the world over

can see and proudly proclaim

I, yes I, am one of their race

 

Oh!

I wish I lived in Quebec today

where the worlds good men long

to have their names givn as

citizens, bold, free, and strong

to the good work laid on us by God

 


 

CBC-2 last night carried the story of the decision

of the province of Quebec to extend compensation

to the victims of Hepatitis-C infected prior to 1986.

This is a day in their history which will not soon be forgotten
