AC is certainly having a spate of issues with landing gear... or are we just hearing more about them for some reason?

Regardless of whether the Dash-8 has issues with its gear, the media is certainly picking up and running more stories about aircraft mishaps, both serious or completely benign, in recent years than before.

Or maybe AC maintenance has a culture problem

Once again this is a Jazz flight owned by Chorus. Not an Air Canada issue

I was thinking the same when reading the post. Other mechanical issues seem common as well as recent sliding off runways iin poor weather and attempt to land at SFO on a taxiway. Is there a culture problem at Air Canada?

Why is this being reported? This happens. Sometimes 5x a day at major airports.

Does the Dash-8 have issues with its gear? It has been the work-horse of inter-island transport in the Caribbean for many years. Never heard of an issue like this.

If it was a -400 then yes, they have a history of Gear issues, but not related to anything that would catch fire that I know of.

The two Air Canada Jazz flights Ottawa-Montreal early Tuesday were both -300.

Canada eh?
Someone probably tossed a joint out the window and it got stuck on the landing gear
