Helijet cancels flights between Victoria and Vancouver
Jan 20 2012
Helijet cancelled flights between Victoria and Vancouver as temperatures dropped early Thursday evening.
"Unfortunately the weather has deteriorated on us and we have had to cancel our evening flights," said a website posting.
Two flights in each direction are affected.
Meanwhile, some commuters were facing a long trip home with accidents tying up traffic on the Pat Bay Highway at Royal Oak and on McKenzie Avenue east of the Pat Bay Highway.
Two vehicles collided at McTavish roundabout late afternoon, but there were no injuries.
It is probable the vehicles hit black ice, said a Sidney/North Saanich RCMP spokesman.
"People have to drive for the conditions. If it's snowy or icy, keep to the speed limit or below," he said.
