A Westjet Boeing 737-800, registration C-GZWS performing flight WS-1246 from Toronto,ON (Canada) to Tampa,FL (USA) with 154 people on board, was accelerating for takeoff from Toronto's runway 23 when the crew rejected takeoff at low speed (just below 80 knots) reporting smoke in the cockpit. The aircraft slowed safely while emergency services responded. The crew advised that the smoke was dissipating and taxied to the apron.

The Canadian TSB reported that maintenance found out the smoke was result of residual fluid from the previous night's compressor wash. The aircraft was returned to service.
