If you are in prison in bc and an immediate family member dies would you be allowed to attend funeral?

If the funeral is out of province would you be given a pass and escort to attend the funeral?

    It's called a "Temporary Absence" and the prisoner would have to get his lawyer to file a notion with the Warden for temoprary release. There would be factors that would way into this such as the severity of the criminal offence he/she was convicted of, how much of a danger does he/she pose to the public if they were to be released even temporary?

    In most cases yes if an immediate family member died, the prisoner would be allowed to attend and again based on the risk level it would range from the prisoner being elibgle to go alone to the funeral all the way up to being escorted by armed correctional officers with the prisoner being handcuffed and shackled the entire time.

    On compassionate grounds you should be allowed.
