TORONTO (Reuters) - WestJet Airlines Ltd canceled more than 100 flights across Canada after a snowstorm battered the country’s central and eastern provinces, a spokeswoman for the carrier said on Wednesday.

The storm canceled all flights in three eastern Canadian cities and continues to “impact our operations in southern Ontario and Quebec,” WestJet spokeswoman Lauren Stewart said by email.

A major storm walloped Canada’s eastern part on Tuesday with its impact spilling over to Wednesday.
