A Westjet Encore de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration C-FENO performing flight WS-3202 from Vancouver,BC to Fort Saint John,BC (Canada) with 17 passengers and 4 crew, was climbing out of Vancouver when the crew selected the gear up but received a red indication for the left main gear as well as an amber left gear door indication. The crew worked the related checklists, performed an alternate gear extension and returned to Vancouver for a safe landing.

The Canadian TSB reported: "Maintenance found the left retract actuator was bypassing internally and replaced the retract actuator. The inspection also found the right main landing gear alternate extension cam mechanism assembly and the alternate extension up-lock release cable were broken. Those were replaced and, after a rigging check, the airplane was returned to service."
