What is the test for producing and tender all relevant evidence in proper reply evidence?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from A.B. v. C.D., 2014 BCSC 1676 (CanLII):

It is also key to observe the fundamental principle that a claimant, in his or her case or in proper reply evidence, must produce and tender all relevant evidence. The objective of the rule is to prevent the potential for unfair surprise, confusion and prejudice, and the consequent distortion of the trial process: Spoor v. Nicholls, 2001 BCCA 426.
