Letter: Rewrite of Young lyric for oil development

To the editor:

Re: Neil Young Blasts Harper Government For Allowing Oilsands Development, (Canadian Press, Jan. 12)

For Young’s remaining benefit concerts for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation’s legal defence fund, I suggest a rewrite of [Young’s song] Southern Man, with the chorus:

Northern man, better keep your head

Don’t forget what the Good Book said

Global change gonna come to pass

Now your dirty oil is flowin’ fast

Northern man.

David Buckna,
