In 2013 case from the Supreme Court of British Columbia, [https://www.canlii.org/en/bc/bcsc/doc/2013/2013bcsc983/2013bcsc983.html?resultIndex=1 ''L.G.'' v. ''R.G.''], the Court said that the term "significant unfairness" is intended to create greater certainty by limiting when the Court will intervent to situations which are "unjust or unreasonable". In a 2014 case of the same Court, [https://www.canlii.org/en/bc/bcsc/doc/2014/2014bcsc1552/2014bcsc1552.html?resultIndex=1 ''Remmem'' v. ''Remmem''], the Court said that in order for there to be "significant unfairness", the unfairness must be compelling or meaningful having regard to the factors set out in the legislation.
