Vavilov, 2019 SCC 65: when a decision maker departs from longstanding practices or established internal authority, it bears the justificatory burden of explaining that departure — Whether the Court of Appeal erred in law in its application of the Vavilov decision — Where a decision maker has no obligation to provide reasons for a decision, how does a court assess the record for whether the justificatory burden has been met, without arbitrarily substituting its own justification — Whether there are any issues of public importance raised? — dismissed 06/23/2022 — Supreme Advocacy acted as agent for the Applicant.
