What is the test for the balance of risk of flight against Canada's international obligations in matters of extradition?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from R. v. Amhaz, 2001 BCSC 1562 (CanLII):

This is the context, in my view, which frames the test for the balance of risk of flight against Canada’s international obligations in matters of extradition. The cases in which the risk of flight was found to be greater than that which is commensurate with Canada’s international obligations included, for instance, The United States of America v. Ross (July 5, 1993), Van. Registry No. CA01711). In that case there were facts of flight from the requesting state on two occasions prior to trial in the requesting state and in circumstances in which committal for extradition had already been ordered and the release was sought pending appeal.
