What is the cost of seeking indulgence from the court?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Ravenda v. 1372708 Ontario Inc., 2010 ONSC 5784 (CanLII):

In some cases, such an indulgence from the court results in a costs order in favour of the responding party. See the case of Fox v. Bourget, 17 C.P.C. (2d) 94, in which Hawkins J. wrote “The price of a granted indulgence is the payment of the costs of those who have sought, unsuccessfully, to prevent its being granted.”
