What is the effect of Covid-19 on a claimant’s Line 150 income?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Brar v Brar, 2021 BCSC 748 (CanLII):

While support should, in most instances, be calculated upon the previous year’s Line 150 income of the payor, I am satisfied that the effects of Covid-19 upon the claimant’s income warrant a different approach: Sahota v. Sahota, 2021 BCSC 470.
