Patently unreasonable

Patently unreasonable or the patent unreasonableness test is a legal test created by common law and used in Canada by the court in the judicial review of administrative decisions. Basically it shields decisionmaking by government bodies as long as their decision is held to be reasonable and not patently unreasonable. Compare this to due process in U.S. law.
