The Canadian TSB wrote: "The maintenance personnel investigation revealed catastrophic internal damage and a hole in the case of the number 1 Engine Driven Hydraulic Pump (EDP), which allowed hydraulic fluid to escape. The number 1 EDP was replaced and the associated abbreviated flush procedure was accomplished at CYYZ. The aircraft was returned to service the next day."
