Harperman It's Time for You to Go- Sing-Along Challenge

Update: Oct 2/2015- 
"The Environment Canada scientist whose anti-Stephen Harper folk song “Harperman” got him suspended from his job is retiring rather than waiting out an investigation into his behaviour."


Sending love and light!

Public servant investigated over political 'Harperman' song 

Tony Turner, a scientist in habitat planning at Environment Canada, was recently sent home on leave with pay while the government investigates the making of Harperman, a music video posted on YouTube in early June that has attracted about 48,000 hits.

Note to Tony: Sending you love and light that someone is going to offer you your dream job. Thanks for this great song. We really need something like this to help unite us all and get our messages out loud and clear and in an artist positive protest. WELL DONE TONY and everyone in the singalong.

Harperman is a protest song against the Conservative government of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. We are organizing a cross-Canada singalong of Harperman on September 17, just a month before the expected date of the Canadian federal election. Please contribute, if you can, to helping organize the singalong. We have a funding campaign on Indiegogo at
Turner has been a public servant for 19 years and is nearing retirement. He most recently was assigned to co-ordinate a project to map priority areas for migratory birds.

But he has also been a stalwart of the local folk music scene since 1994 when he joined Writers’ Bloc, Ottawa’s songwriters collective. He has several CDs, plays regularly across the province and is best known for the song Circle of Song, which will be included in a new anthology of Canadian folk songs. His biography makes no mention of being a public servant.

Who muzzles the poor scientist? / Calls troubled people "terrorists"? / Who wants the courts to just say yes? / Suppresses freedom of the press?

You can drive your omnibus to Kokamo / And take that useless caucus when you go / We'll scratch you from the long form census poll / Harperman, it's time for you to go

Lyrics to Harperman

Who controls our parliament?
Harperman, Harperman
 Who squashes all dissent?
Harperman, Harperman
 The Duffy handout incident
No respect for the environment
it’s time for you to go
Who’s the king of secrecy?
Who has slashed the CBC?
No money for PTSD
Accuses good Judge Beverley


Who’s the rogue in prorogue?
Whose party line must be toed?
Won’t buy into climate change
Until it’s sold on the stock exchange
Whose smarmy smile is a thin veneer?
Who preaches the politics of fear?
Ignores the plight of native folks
Missing women, it’s no joke


Who’s dropping payload in Iraq?
Who passed the Unfair Elections Act?
Who’s a two-bit controlling freak
Makes us feel the future’s bleak?
Who muzzles the poor scientist?
Calls troubled people “terrorists”?
Who wants the courts to just say yes?
Suppresses freedom of the press?


Who turns watchdogs into lapdogs?
Gives his friends the best fat cat jobs?
Bigger prisons, “tough on crime”
Gerrymanders election lines
Who’s pulling all the Tory strings?
Who stands to the right of the right wing?
Ignores the cause of everything?
But to ideology will cling
Who reveres Uncle Sam?
Says our future lies in oil sands?
Dirty oil, dirty plans
Dirty tricks, dirty hands

We want you gone (gone, gone)
You and your pawn (pawn, pawns)
No more con (con, cons)
Time to move on (on, on)
Get out of town (town, town )
Don’t want you round (round, round)
Harperman, it’s time for you to go

Tag 1

You can drive your omnibus to Kokamo
And take that useless caucus when you go
We’ll scratch you from the long form census poll
Harperman, it’s time for you to go
Tag 2
(parody of O Sinner Man)
Harperman, where ya gonna run to? x3
On Election Day
