What is the test for a motion to obtain an injunction against the Respondent?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Liapis v Keshow, 2017 BCSC 1730 (CanLII):

On my review of the material that is before me, I am not satisfied the respondent has met the tests set out in RJR‑MacDonald v. Canada, 1994 CanLII 117 (SCC), [1994] 1 S.C.R. 311, an authority upon in which the respondent relies. The respondent, in order to satisfy the RJR‑MacDonald tests, must establish a good arguable case, that he is likely to suffer irreparable harm and that the balance of convenience supports the granting of an injunction. In my view, the respondent has not established any of these three tests.
