A Jazz Canadair CRJ-705 on behalf of Air Canada, registration C-FJJZ performing flight QK-7943/AC-7943 from Toronto,ON (Canada) to Minneapolis,MN (USA), landed on Minneapolis' runway 30R after a very rough approach, tower reported winds from 240 at 24 knots gusting 37 knots and advised of pilot reports of about 10 knots wind gain at 500 feet AGL, and rolled out without apparent incident. Having slowed to taxi speed the crew reported they received a windshear alert with a gain of more than 15 knots at about 500 feet. The aircraft subsequently initiated the turn off the runway and was handed off to ground, the aircraft stopped just past the hold short line and reported on ground they had lost their nose wheel steering. The aircraft was subsequently towed to the apron.

A passenger reported that they had a rather "interesting" approach to Minneapolis, nothing that unusual however. However, it became unusual when after landing they couldn't taxi to the apron. The captain opened the cabin door twice and talked to the ground crew before they were towed to the apron. Upon query the crew indicated they had lost nose wheel steering due to the hard landing.
