A Westjet Encore de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration C-FWEW performing flight WS-3114 from Victoria,BC to Vancouver,BC (Canada) with 76 passengers and 4 crew, was accelerating for takeoff from Victoria's runway 27 when the crew rejected takeoff at low speed (about 78 knots over ground) after receiving a "#2 AC GEN" caution indication.

The Canadian TSB reported: "The crew rejected the take-off and a MAYDAY emergency was declared with air traffic control. Once the crew had diagnosed the cause of the warning, the emergency was canceled, and the aircraft was taxied back to the gate without further incident. No one was injured and there was no damage to the aircraft." The TSB reported further that maintenance replaced the No. 2 alternating current generator.
