Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada


The following excerpt is from Lynch v St. John’s (City), 2020 NLCA 31 (CanLII):

Both parties made submissions on the basis that the standard of review was governed by the principles outlined in Dunsmuir v. New Brunswick, 2008 SCC 9, [2008] 1 S.C.R. 190 and the cases interpreting it. The Dunsmuir approach, as developed in the subsequent case law, mandated a review of a tribunal’s decision for most cases, including questions of interpretation of the tribunal’s home statute, according to a reasonableness standard.
