What is the consequence of a finding that a decision in a similar case must result in similar sanctions?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Budarick v. the Corporation of the Townships of Brudenell, Lyndoch and Raglan (Integrity Commissioner), 2022 ONSC 640 (CanLII):

The appellant submits that similar cases must result in similar sanctions, and that the application judge failed to impose a penalty that is consistent with jurisprudence. This, she says, is an error in principle. The jurisprudence she speaks of is a single decision – the decision in City of Elliott Lake v. Pearce.
