What is the test for admissible affidavit evidence in an interlocutory application?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Furlong v. Robinson, 2013 BCSC 2277 (CanLII):

This is not an application for summary trial or summary judgment where the evidence is usually scrutinized more fully than it may be in other types of interlocutory applications. However, affidavit evidence on any application that is larded with expressive language, self-serving opinions, editorializing and unsubstantiated hearsay, all in an attempt to colour the reader’s view, is inadmissible: Kennedy v. Kennedy 2006 BCSC 190.
