What is the test for appeal leave to appeal the decision of a development appeal board?

Alberta, Canada


The following excerpt is from Lillo's School of Modern Music Ltd. v. Edmonton (City), 2004 ABCA 37 (CanLII):

The applicants rely on Smith v. Bighorn No. 8 (Municipal District), supra, a decision of this court where leave to appeal the decision of a development appeal board was granted. However, in granting leave, O’Leary, J.A. was given the content of the intended rebuttal and was able to make a preliminary assessment of the appellant’s likelihood of success.

I find that the opportunity to make a preliminary assessment of the unemployed rebuttal, as seen in Smith v. Bighorn No. 8 (Municipal District), is essential in determining the appellant’s likelihood of success.
