Pavement will wear those tires down right away. Slicks for city riding would be a much better choice and improve braking and cornering, as well.

It's a Canadian Tire bike, so don't stress it too much and have fun with it in the city. Personally, I wouldn't take it for any downhill-type riding, but that's just me.
a bike is a bike.
if you can ride it, then that's fine.
spare tires and tubes can be purchased at any bike shop
if you are comfortable riding the bike, there is no reason to change it.
if you want to change the tires for road tires, you can also get those at any bike shop.
the down side of using ROAD tires is that you wont ride well in the dirt, and grassy areas, also the tires will feel harder and less comfy.
if you are after comfort and wants to keep ROAD tires, then get a pair of Big Apple tires, they are comfy like the MTB tires you got, but made for the road, so it wont have those MTB blocks that helps you on the dirty, sand, rocky, grassy, pot holes areas.
