An Air Canada Rouge Airbus A321-200, registration C-GHQI performing flight RV-1997 from Cozumel (Mexico) to Toronto,ON (Canada) with 123 people on board, was enroute at FL370 about 250nm north of Cozumel when the flight crew received multiple successive fault messages on ECAM concerning the ELAC (Elevator and Aileron Computer), stabilizer, autopilot and yellow hydraulic system, as result the FBW reverted to ALTN LAW. The flight crew declared Mayday and decided to divert to Tampa,FL (USA). During the approach the FBW further downgraded to DIRECT LAW. The aircraft landed safely on Tampa's runway 01L about 50 minutes after the onset of trouble.

The Canadian TSB reported the aircraft was towed to the apron due to the loss of nose wheel steering. Maintenance is investigating.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Tampa 3 days later.
