What are my rights as a Canadian citizen living in Ontario in respect to police officers? Such as my rights to refuse search and following their orders, etc.

I've been reading stories such as this one
and this one
about police impersonation and/or abuse. There's a lot of heresay about an individual's rights when it comes to being told/asked to do something by the police, but I'd like to be more aware of my rights. I've looked at the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
, however, the legalese is a bit daunting. Does anyone know where I can find a clear guide? Something similar to this
