A Westjet Encore de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration C-GWEO performing flight WS-3234 from Winnipeg,MB to Saskatoon,SK (Canada) with 68 people on board, was accelerating for takeoff from Winnipeg's runway 31 when the crew rejected takeoff at about 80 knots reporting a possible smoke or fire indication. The aircraft slowed safely, stopped on the runway, emergency services responded, checked the aircraft and subsequently followed the aircraft to the gate.

The Canadian TSB reported the crew received a left engine low engine oil pressure indication at about 80 knots, rejected takeoff and declared emergency. The aircraft stopped on the runway, the crew performed the emergency checklists and shut both engines down. Emergency services checked the aircraft for damage, fire and leaking fluids, then the crew restarted the right hand engine and taxied to the apron. Maintenance is replacing the left hand engine (PW150A).

NAV Canada reported the crew rejected takeoff due to a possible smoke or fire indication.
