What are the reasons for a judge's decision to grant an application to overturn an order that would have prevented the application from being heard on an appeal?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Stos v. Stos, 2022 ONSC 1137 (CanLII):

Most importantly, the application judge gave no reasons for his decision about the content of the order, and it is not obvious from the record why he made the order, given the existence of the 2018 Order, made on consent. Given the total absence of reasons, his decision is not capable of meaningful appellate review. The lack of any reasons amounts to an error of law in the circumstances of this case and is grounds alone for allowing the appeal (Bruno v. Dacosta, 2020 ONCA 602 at paras. 15, 22 and 24).
