We have the right to do what we want with ourselves and no one can tell us otherwise or control us. If we would not have fundamental rights and freedoms we would not be able to hold meetings about which ever topic we would like to. Since we do have these rights in Canada we would not be penalized or in trouble with the law for having meetings and assemblies on certain topics.Fundamental Freedoms are important to have in Canada because without them we would be controlled by the government and stripped of our opinion and freedom of speech.
