The ice storm that hit much of Eastern Canada certainly caused tie-ups at Toronto's Pearson International Airport, but flights coming from there to Saskatoon were running fairly smoothly on Monday.
"It's been managed well. We're just seeing some minor delays. They're running anywhere from 30 to 40 minutes (late) is sort of the worst case scenarios we're seeing," Saskatoon Airport Authority CEO Stephen Maybury said.
TORONTO - The mayor of Toronto said "things are improving" in the city hit hard by a weekend ice storm which wreaked havoc from southwestern Ontario to the Atlantic Coast.
Rob Ford says power has been restored to 75,000 homes and more are being brought back every hour by Toronto Hydro crews working around the clock after ice splintered a huge number of trees and made roads and sidewalks treacherous.
More than 200,000 Hydro One customers in Toronto and the GTA continue to live in the dark.
Many residents with power, have turned to Twitter, offering shelter, warm meals and aid to others without heat and power.

From a wind chill of -45 to a temperature of minus five degrees Celsius: that's the weather story in Saskatoon over the next 24 hours.
A wind chill warning was in effect for much of southern Saskatchewan this morning but it ended before noon.
"We've got temperatures near - 35 and south westerly winds of 15 to 20 kilometres per hour, and that's combining to create wind chills this morning anywhere from -40 to -45," said Sandy Massey, meteorologist with Environment Canada.
The ministry of highways is reminding drivers to be careful when out on the road after a collision Wednesday.
A car crashed into a plow on Highway 10 near Fort Qu'appelle. The plough had pulled over to allow drivers to go by when it was rear-ended by a passing car.
The ministry is reminding drivers that plows drive much slower than normal traffic when a plough is nearby because they can create mini blizards when you're trying to pass.
You are also supposed to slow to sixty kilometres per hour when passing a plough that's pulled over.
It’s colder today than it has been the last couple of days and it is going to stay that way for the rest of the week.
Next week is expected to be a bit warmer for Christmas, according to Environment Canada.
Freezing rain in southern Saskatchewan triggered a whole new slate of travel warnings Wednesday morning, though conditions seem to be improving.
It fell for much of the morning inside Regina but also around Craven and Lumsden. It was accompanied by some heavy snowfall that has since abated inside the city.
Blowing snow was causing problems on highways. Callers reported slow travel around Findlater on Highway 11 because of reduced visibility and slick conditions.
When it comes to snowfall this winter Saskatchewan is apparently getting off light.
David Phillips, Environment Canada's senior climatologist, said Regina and Saskatoon have only had about 15 centimetres, or half a foot, of snow so far this season.
"You typically would have about 30 (centimetres) by now. So you really only have about half of what you normally do."
But he noted that the extreme cold of recent weeks has ensured that, up until this week, not a drop has melted away.
After a seemingly never ending run of incredibly cold temperatures in recent weeks, Saskatchewan is welcoming a warm-up.
Sunday should see Regina's temperature hit a high of -5 C. It's the first time the city has seen single-digit temperatures in nearly two weeks, thanks to a long-standing pocket of Arctic air that saw temperatures plunge regularly below the -20 C mark.
After the past few weeks of frigidly cold wind chills, Mother Nature is about to offer a bit of a reprieve with some nice weather in the forecast.
Jim Slipec with Environment Canada said a wild swing temperatures will push day time highs on Sunday into the minus one range.
“Typically for this time of year daytime highs are around minus eight (degrees Celsius), clearly we have not been anywhere near that and we’re actually going to swing the pendulum the other way,” he said.
