Toronto In photos: Massive winter storm pelted Ontario with snow, ice and high winds

Environment Canada issued widespread winter storm warnings across Ontario as a Colorado Low made its way into the province, promising everything from freezing rain in the southwestern part of the province to as much as 40 centimetres of snow near the Ottawa region.

Crews work to keep aprons and runways clear of snow storm at Pearson International Airport in Mississauga, Ontario.
