 This court has consistently refused to hear from a party or entertain an appeal where the record shows continuing disobedience with court orders: see Dickie v. Dickie, 2007 SCC 8 (CanLII),  1 S.C.R. 346; Nowacki v. Nowacki, 2015 CanLii 41092 (Ont. C.A.); Martyn v. Martyn, 2010 ONCA 730 (CanLII); Burley v.
