AAA Editor Notes
The Supreme Court of Canada is just w. of Parliament Hill at 301 Wellington St. Guided tours of the judicial branch of the Canadian government are provided by law students, who offer an insight into the operation of the Canadian judicial system. The Supreme Court is the highest court of appeal for criminal and civil cases and deals with legal issues of public importance. Two statues, representing truth and justice, are on either side of the entrance to the Art Deco building. When court is in session, visitors can sit in on the hearing of an appeal.
