Democracy comes from the Greek word, 'domes',  which means people. A good thing about democracy is we get to have a secret vote and no one sees who we are voting for. A country with democracy is a free country. What is a free country you say? A free country is a country that lets their people have a say.     


We have a free country and this means that we have the right to vote. We have a parliament and they make the laws then we have to vote and if the people want that law they then send it to the governor general to sign it and then it is a new law.     

This is a picture of guards is a country that  does not have democracy .How do you tell that it is not a free country?
