Anyone have any info on this today? A friend of mine was on the flight, but, I can't find any news articles on it. Apparently his plane went off the runway and into a ditch. He also said the airport was shutdown for almost an hour because of it.. If I get more info, I'll post.

According to CBC, YWG has been closed for most of the morning due to freezing rain on the runways ...

... doesn't mention anything about an aircraft off the runway.

According to CKY-TV, about 5 mm of freezing rain today.

They made no mention on their news just now, but if true I'd bet on a CRJ -- lots and lots through YWG every day.

the ice we got today was insane! Roads that were not treated were covered in smooth slippery ice about 1/2" thick(with a nice layer of water since it has been raining all day). I cannot honestly remember the last time it has rained in February. This was honestly a treacherous day. The ice was so slippery in parking lots and on sidewalks; you had to walk like a penguin and even then you slipped and fell.

Just to give a sense of what happened, here is a video of some people SKATING down a highway today. http://link.brightcove.com/services/.../bcpid1519681409?bctid=10532456001

CBC's website has been updated and I found this ...

http://www.cbc.ca/canada/manitoba/story/2009/02/09/freezing-rain.html

"An Air Canada Airbus A-319 arriving from Toronto Monday morning landed safely, but as it taxied back to the terminal, it fishtailed and nearly went off the tarmac.

The passengers had to sit in the plane on the tarmac for about an hour. No one was injured in the mishap, and the plane was eventually towed back to the terminal."
