Best undergrad for law school in Canada

I am an IB student currently in Grade 11. I have a Grade 11 average of 95% right now. This includes difficult courses like SL Physics, SL French and HL Chem. I got a 100% on my grade 12 math credit.

My goal is to become a lawyer in Canada, but I'm open to considering the states. But I'm not applying to the states for my undergrad because I simply don't think it's worth the tuition if I already have my mind on law school. I am extremely involved in extracurriculars, I do almost everything.

I want to apply to Queens Commerce and am interested in their six-year program, Commerce (3 years) and JD (3 years). I am also strongly considering iBBA at Schulich. Nonetheless, the best case scenario for me would be to do my undergrad at Queen's and then get into a top-tier law school in the states and settle there. Second best case scenario would be to get into a Canadian law school such as Osgoode or U of T. Worst case scenario, I would pursue my CA/CPA designation, perhaps through the Graduate Diploma in Accounting at Queens (as an extension of Commerce).

Not sure what the best undergrad is for me, with the goal of law school. Here's what I'm searching for in my undergrad experience: solid GPA something above 92% and enough time for extracurriculars (to build my CV). 

There is one more aspect, my LSAT score, which might be the same matter which school I go to. But I would like some extra time to work on that if the summer gets busy with an internship (hopefully paid).

Please help me out! What's the best uni and program for my undergrad?

Is it possible to change career choices if you are not satisfied with it once you are in university.
So i was just wondering, is it possible to change programs once i get accepted into uni? I applied to ottawa, york, toronto, queens for either political science and a Juris doctor program. Im afraid i will hate law even though i find it interesting.

Business or Law?
So I am currently in grade 12 and I am considering Laurier, Western, York and (possibly McGill).

I am planning on studying Business Administration. However, I have another option of interest which is  corporate Law. 
Truly to me, it comes down to which field would be more profitable. 
I heard that even if you do get a law degree it is still extremely hard to become employed in the GTA. 
I'm just wondering which route is more ideal and what I could do with those degrees?

Best undergrad degree for law school hopeful
Which degree would best complement a law degree?
Please note that I am not asking which degree would be the easiest to get a 4.0 in; rather, which degree would be most helpful when practising law, or attending law school?

I was thinking maybe econ/finance..? What do you guys think?
