Democracy in action. Chapter 2. “I can play, but may i ?”. Turn to page 28 of your textbooks. Read Justine Blainey’s story and then in groups answer the questions using the “ Timed Paired Share ” Strategy. What are our rights and freedoms?.
Your freedom to state your opinions and speak out on issues is limited by the rights of others. This is why it is against the law to try to ruin a person’s reputation by writing or saying things about the person that you know are not true.
Everyone in Canada has certain rights but only citizens have democratic rights and mobility rights. Democratic rights allow citizens to vote. Mobility rights give citizens the right to travel freely within Canada and to move anywhere in the country to live and work. Citizens can also enter, remain in, or leave Canada whenever they wish.
A society becomes more democratic when more people participate!!
