Why do we obey the law?
As a citizen of Canada, we obey the law for numerous reasons. To obey the law is to be seen as the right thing to do. Many people obey the law for many reasons. Whether its because of a political obligation where the citizen feels it is morally right to do, gratitude, where the citizens believes they will receive something in return for their obedience, fair play, where the obedience is the price to pay for security, order, and justice, or associative obligation, where we are under an obligation to comply with the norms that govern it.
