What is the test for joint custody arrangements?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Giroux v. Giroux, 2012 ONSC 7076 (CanLII):

Joint custody arrangements work when the parties can communicate and where they can operate without friction and disagreement. Regrettably, that situation has never really existed in this case. See Baker v. Baker (1979), 23 0R (2nd) 391 (CA).
