Parts of Ontario received up to 25 cm of snow



Much of southern Ontario is clearing from a major winter storm, while snow remains in the forecast for parts of eastern Ontario.


The blast of wintry weather caused many public and Catholic school boards, including those in Toronto, Ottawa, York Region, Peel Region and Durham Region, to cancel buses, but schools remained open.


The Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board cancelled buses and closed schools, but Hamilton Catholic board schools remained open.


Environment Canada said that, by today morning, some areas west of Toronto, including Halton, Peel and Hamilton accumulated up to 25 centimetres of snow or slightly more, while regions east toward Prince Edward County and Kingston also received accumulations around that amount.

The storm disrupted the travel plans of thousands of people on Wednesday after Toronto Pearson International Airport reported that 25% of its departures and 26% of its arrivals were cancelled, but by this morning those numbers had significantly decreased.


Ontario Provincial Police also reported dozens of collisions on the roads this morning as well.


Standing at the scene of a multi-vehicle crash involving at least six vehicles on the eastbound ramp of Highway 401 to Dixie Road in Mississauga, OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt urged motorists to drive appropriately for the conditions.
