What is the reasonableness standard for a judicial review to set aside a decision?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Taylor v British Columbia (Information and Privacy Commissioner), 2017 BCSC 1420 (CanLII):

When applying the reasonableness standard, judicial review judges should not minutely parse or dissect the adjudicator’s reasoning. In order to set aside the decision, any flaw in reasoning should be obvious and should be fundamental to the conclusion reached by the adjudicator. See Kenyon v. British Columbia (Superintendent of Motor Vehicles), 2015 BCCA 485, at para. 55.
