What are the relevant factors for determining whether either of two possible jurisdictions would be suitable for the determination of issues raised by the litigation at issue?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Lieberman and Morris v. Business Development Bank of Canada, 2006 BCSC 242 (CanLII):

It is common ground that in circumstances where either of two possible jurisdictions would be suitable for the determination of the issues raised by the litigation at issue, the consideration of the numerous factors enunciated in Stern v. Dove, supra, and any other relevant factors is neither mathematical nor mechanical. Not all factors will be of equal weight. Rather, they must be assessed individually and collectively within the context of the case under consideration.
