Most of us remember them from the 1970’s and 80’s when, according to Rolling Stone, “At their best, Chilliwack was the finest Canadian rock band, outrocking BTO and outwriting Burton Cummings…” Though the band has gone through several changes of membership, lead singer Bill Henderson remains. The following song is a cry for action in the 2015 election. Together the Henderson girls, Chilliwack releases Take Back this Land.

According to video producer Bill Warriner, this song “is intended as a general call to vote against the anti-people Harper conservatives…. We will need a majority progressive government to undo the harm that has been done over the past 10 years.”
As Bill and May Henderson explain in their lyrics, we have been “living on corporate time” too long. “We gotta take back our democracy and build Canada again.”
