When will a Court remove an estate trustee/executor?

Historically, Ontario’s Courts needed to see evidence of misconduct in order to remove trustees.

However, there is also case law in Ontario to suggest that courts have removed executors when there is hostility either between co-executors or an executor and beneficiary such that it is no longer possible for the executor to exercise his duties in an completely impartial and objective manner .
