Winter Weather Wreaks Havoc on Travellers Flying In and Out of Pearson Airport
If you were planning on getting a late March Break start or picking someone up from the airport, you probably noticed that the winter weather has had a rather pronounced impact on flights at Pearson.
According to Pearson’s official website, 263 departing flights have been cancelled, as have 245 arriving flights.
Because the winter weather was quite expected, the airport warned passengers to keep track of flights, as cancellations and delays are fairly common in inclement weather.

So while this has no doubt been a headache for travelers, Brampton and GTA residents should take comfort in the fact that the steadily falling snow should start to clear up today and end overnight.
According to the Weather Network, we shouldn’t see any more white stuff until some wet flurries hit on Friday.
It’s also important to note that travelers weren’t the only people affected by Old Man Winter today. Sheridan College announced that all three of its campuses would be closed due to the weather and several major transportation agencies, including GO Transit, asked that passengers keep an eye on their websites to check for any weather-related delays.
Weather notice: All Sheridan campuses are closed Tues., March 14. Classes, business operations & the Sheridan Shuttle are cancelled. Pls RT— Sheridan College (@sheridancollege) March 14, 2017
