I am awaiting a flight at Edmonton, and I just noticed that Delta No 189 has appeared on the departure board with destination of Beijing at 1900 MDT.
delta.com indicates that the flight is diverting. Any idea why it is diverting?

How is YEG on the flight path of DTW-PEK?
Should have been much, much further north at that longitude.

It was. It first turned west and then turned to fly south to Edmonton. As they say, probably a medical. However, it flew at least an hour and a half after diverting until it landed at Edmonton. Feel sorry for the ill person.

At least it diverted to a location with decent medical facilities and infrastructure...i.e. sometimes aircraft divert to remote locations in a medical just to learn that the place where they diverted to doesn't have the appropriate infrastructure to deal with the ill passenger.
