The following excerpt is from H. (H.) v. C. (H.), 2002 ABQB 426 (CanLII):

In Young v. Young, supra, Justice L’Heureux-Dubé indicates in her dissent that the test for curtailment of access is not one of harm to the children, but that the test must be “the best interests of the children, assessed from a child-centered perspective”.
