British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Wang v. Wang, 1998 CanLII 6374 (BC CA):

In every case, the asserted benefits of the new regime must be balanced with the factors favouring the agreement or previous order, lest the purpose of the new policy be undermined, as Wein J. commented in Cane v. Newman, [1998] O.J. No. 1776 (Q.L.) at para. 38 and 39.
