Can an applicant intervene in a visa officer's failure to award bonus points for a close relative in Canada?

Canada (Federal), Canada

The following excerpt is from Chen v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration), 1999 CanLII 8140 (FC):

The applicant's dissatisfaction with the visa officer's failure to award bonus points for a close relative in Canada is not, in itself, a basis to intervene. It is the visa officer's evidence that he had determined the application should be refused because the applicant did not have the minimum experience to be assessed. He avers that he advised the applicant of the reasons for this at her interview. Evidence of a relative, which he says was subsequently provided, was not thereafter considered. Since the applicant, having had a zero assessment for experience, was not admissible to Canada as a permanent resident, the manager's conclusion that the issue of bonus points for a close relative was moot, is an entirely reasonable conclusion, consistent with that of Mr. Justice McKeown in Besil v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration).8 Personal suitability
