What is the test for inadmissible certificate evidence?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from R. v. Girard, 1999 CanLII 5367 (BC SC):

At issue in this appeal is whether the certificate evidence was correctly ruled inadmissible because of the peace officer's lack of reasonable and probable grounds to make the demand. In short, the issue may be succinctly stated as whether Rilling v. The Queen (1975), 1975 CanLII 159 (SCC), 24 C.C.C. (2d) 81 (S.C.C.), is still good law?
