In most provinces cops have a right to randomly select and pull anyone and proceed to inspection. If they have the slightest hint that something's wrong, they'll proceed and be in their right to do a search (not talking about stripping down the car as it sometimes happens at the borders but visual inspection).

It can be just to check that the driver/passengers are all ok, that no prohibited items are in the car or that the car is mechanically safe for it to be on the road.

Source: RCMP trooper friend - Then again, what he told me was not the equivalent of a law book, so one would have to take this statement with a grain of salt. That being said, it does show that they might have more rights and means that some of you seems to think
