What is the consideration of child protection factors in determining the child’s best interests?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Agmon v. James, 2018 ONCJ 4 (CanLII):

[52] In Hernandez v. Nikas, [2017] ONSC 162, at paragraph 76, Justice P.J. Henderson wrote the following about this factor: It is to be noted that this consideration comes at the end of a long list of factors the court is to take into account. It is accorded no special status that suggests it should take precedence over any other consideration when determining the child’s best interests. In other words, it is but one factor the court should consider.
