Judicial visits of the Canadian prison system allow judges to witness firsthand the conditions in which Canadian inmates live.
Visitors have all the rights of an executive, a legislator, and a judge. The three branches of government combine in a single person. If this law applies to prisons, judges can exert their powers as judges and as visitors to correct abuses in the prison system. This law then supplies a novel set of remedies to situations not covered by private nor public law.
