Winter weather across Canada could make holiday travel a challenge
Weather disturbances across Canada are threatening to make Christmas travel difficult during the next few days.
Heavy snow and high winds are expected across the Atlantic Provinces and parts of Quebec, freezing rain will drizzle down in Ontario, and bitter cold will affect northern areas of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, according to Environment Canada.
On Saturday, Air Canada, WestJet and Porter airlines all issued travel advisories to customers because of potentially debilitating winter hits on airports in Halifax, Moncton, and other Maritime cities, which could affect flights departing across Canada.
The airlines suggested travellers check flight statuses online before going to the airport, but at Pearson Airport early Saturday; most flights were taking off as usual.
