4: What else does the Government do? The government protects each and everyone of it's citizens, including it's youth's. It does this with the Youth Criminal Justice Act. This act ensures that all possible variables are taken into consideration when charging teens (AKA home life, peer pressure, threats, etc) It also aids in helping teens get back on their feet after being in jail.

6: Individual and Collective Rights Individual rights are rights that are held by every individual in Canada. (E.G.t he freedom to be of discrimination, the freedom to have your own religion, etc) . Collective right are the rights held by a group, like the Aboriginals, Metis, or Francophone.
8: Economic Decision Making There are two main economic systems. market, and mixed. An example of a market economy would be the United States. Their economy is controlled by private business owners with very little government involvement. The mixed economy on the other hand is controlled by both the government and private business owners, making the government's involvement more pronounced.
