- freedom of religion, of thought, of expression

I think that the Canadian Rights help this country be the way it is because it keeps everything in everyone's favour. I think that we can go to the grocery store or go to the mall because of the rights that we have in Canada. The everyday things that we do and take for granted are available because of the rights we have today.
The worldwide game that we all love was invented by a Canadian inventor by the name of Dr. James Naismith. He was born in Almonte, Ontario. He teaches Psychology, Bible Study and taught Physical Education. At the very beginning of Basketball, this game only had 13 rules (The sport's inventor, James Naismith of Almonte, Ontario, instructs players in one of the first experimental games). The very first game was played with a soccer ball and 2 peach baskets nailed about 10 feet high. As Basketball first originated in Springfield, Massachusetts (also known as Spring Field College), Basketball appeared in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany (Basketball History: Origin of the Sport).
