Can a flaw or flaws be seen in the reasons of an adjudicator?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Rohl v. British Columbia (Superintendent of Motor Vehicles), 2018 BCCA 316 (CanLII):

The issue for the chambers judge, then, was not whether a flaw or flaws could be seen in the adjudicator’s reasons, but whether her decision, considered as a whole, was reasonable in the sense described at para. 74 of Dunsmuir v. New Brunswick 2008 SCC 9 – i.e., whether the decision fell “within a range of acceptable outcomes that are defensible in respect of the facts and law.”
