Why do we need government? As we have seen, people in groups have always had some form of government. Without it, we would have chaos. We would have no system of transportation, no hospitals, no police to protect us, no help for the elderly or those who cannot care for themselves. Following are some of the sections we will cover in this book: Canada’s Coat of Arms, the Queen, the Parliament Buildings, our Federal Government, Canadian symbols, the Cabinet, the Senate, the right to vote, the Electoral Process, etc. Some activities include; a mock election, newscasts, research project, etc.
