Watching the arrivals tonight I noticed that a couple of AC flights are being divereted to other places before coming to YYC. AC 8232 YXY-YYC is heading to YQL while AC 220 landed at YEG before heading south. What's the reason behind those flights diverting? Seems odd for AC 8232 to head to YQL than backtrack to YYC...

Life only makes sense when you look at it backwards.

The winds here last night were incredible, multiple trees, fences, garden furniture, neon signs, trampolines all blown over. It does not surprise me, that there were diversions. Heaven knows how ANY aircraft could land in wind like that, although I believe some did!
I'm sorry Hawaiian 763, but you stand to be corrected. There were numerous thunderstorms in the City limits. Not to insult your intelligence, but the entire Southwest/Southeast saw major thunderstorms for around 30min.
