Power to the people. Power be damned.
Power corrupts they say; now itís going to flood the land
Talking about the Rupert and the George, the Opinaca
Broadback and the Nottaway
The multibillion-dollar James Bay Hydro Electric Power Play.
No, the government never gave the Crees a choice
No, they had no chance to refuse.
The old progress-versus-the people trick and the people always lose.
The natives have got a right to be restless
Because their whole lifeís at stake
You canít take a manís land, and his livelihood,
And turn it into a lake.
