What is the impact of disclosure of a court mediation document in a visa application?

Canada (Federal), Canada

The following excerpt is from Shi v Canada (Citizenship and Immigration), 2013 CanLII 97299 (CA IRB):

As the applicant’s hukou and the rest of the court mediation document were still not disclosed for this hearing, I agree with the visa officer and infer those records would have adversely affected the appellant’s case: see Ma v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration).[4]
