Is there any case law that supports the argument that a public interest inquiry is in the "public interest" context?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from 2110120 Ontario Inc. o/a Cargo County v. Buttar, 2022 ONSC 1766 (CanLII):

Counsel for the Moving Defendants, in their factum, simply states that the “public interest” is “indistinguishable from this one in respect of the public interest inquiry” relying on Singh v. Sandhu CV-21-3181 (unreported). The Moving Defendants’ reliance on Singh is misplaced.
