What is the test for denying a parent's right to see their children?

Saskatchewan, Canada


The following excerpt is from D.R.C. v A.D.F., 2016 SKQB 121 (CanLII):

In Simpson v Simpson, 2002 SKCA 97, 223 Sask R 292, the court stated: 5 …I agree with the comments of Madam Justice Trussler in Tremblay v. Tremblay in which she stated that: I start with the premise that a parent has the right to see his or her children and is only to be deprived of that right if he or she has abused or neglected the children. Likewise, and more important, a child has a right to the love, care and guidance of a parent. To be denied that right by the other parent without sufficient justification, such as abuse or neglect, is, in itself, a form of child abuse.
