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

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.
