A Porter Airlines de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration C-GLQB performing flight PD-246 from Toronto City,ON to Thunder Bay,ON (Canada) with 67 passengers and 4 crew, was climbing through 16000 feet out of Toronto's Billy Bishop Airport when the crew heard a popping noise and detected an electrical odour. The crew worked the related checklists and decided to divert to Toronto's International Airport, where the aircraft landed without further incident.
