Orders - Reasons for Decision - Adequacy

Filanovsky v. Filanovsky (Ont CA, 2017)

In this case the Court of Appeal succinctly stated the main requirement of reasons for decision:
[13] The sufficiency of reasons is not a free-standing ground of appeal. If the reasons do not permit meaningful appellate review, appellate intervention may be justified: see for example, Dovbush v. Mouzitchka, 2016 ONCA 381 (CanLII), at para. 22.
