What is the test for adding a party to an application to add a party?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Krafta v. F.L.E.X. Excavating Ltd., 2012 BCSC 616 (CanLII):

The plaintiff argues that on an application to add a party, there is no lis between the applicant and proposed defendant (Hartoft v. Bell, 2005 BCSC 1723 at para. 8-11, aff’d 2006 BCSC 413 at para. 15). I infer from this argument that costs can only be awarded after the new party is added as a defendant.
