Why is the Canny edge detection used instead of Sobel/ Prewitt edge detection before Hough transformation?

I know that for the Hough Transform to work on an image, it needs to be a binary image. To convert from a grayscale image, an edge detection algorithm should be employed. I notice that people always ...
