An Embraer ERJ-175, operated by Sky Regional Airlines, flight 7665 was departing from runway 06L at Toronto/LBPIA (CYYZ) during snowy weather conditions. At the same time, a convoy of snow plows /sweeper vehicles were operating north of runway 06L and proceeding southbound on taxiway Echo. ATC instructed the vehicles to turn left on to taxiway Charlie (east), however the vehicles turned left on Charlie 2 (C2) towards runway 06L and continued past the hold short position. Ground control instructed the vehicles to STOP, and they came to rest just prior to 06L. The tower controller instructed C-FEJB to abort; the flight crew rejected the take-off and the aircraft came to rest just prior to C2.

After the incident passengers transferred to another aircraft. The incident aircraft, C-FEJB, resumed service 44 hours after the incident.
