An Air Canada Airbus A321-200, registration C-GIUB performing flight AC-115 from Toronto,ON to Vancouver,BC (Canada) with 196 people on board, was climbing through FL230 out of Toronto when the crew noticed that they could not control the cockpit and cabin temperature. The crew performed a rapid descent to 10,000 feet, declared emergency and decided to return to Toronto. The aircraft landed overweight but safely back in Toronto about 85 minutes after departure.

The Canadian TSB reported the aircraft had been dispatched with pack #2 inoperate under minimum equipment list requirements. The crew levelled off and attempted to control the temperature, but was unable to control the temperature and therefore initiated a rapid descent to 10,000 feet. The overweight landing was uneventful with emergency services on stand by. The passenger oxygen masks were not released. Maintenance found damaged bellows downstream of the check valve and replaced the bellows. The #2 pack flow control was replaced with no other faults found, the #2 pack was returned to service, too.
