What is the balance of convenience between the date of trial and the location of the trial?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from N.B. v. L.E., 2009 BCPC 395 (CanLII):

The mother says that it would be far more convenient to have the trial in Colorado – as there has been a hearing take place there already where expert evidence has been led. Such a decision ought not be based on the mere balance of convenience, although that is a factor to be considered. [Rogers v. Bank of Montreal p.107 Craig J.A.]
