Strong winds cancel ferry crossings in Atlantic Canada

The same system that's bringing damaging winds and power outages to parts of Ontario and southern Quebec is pushing into Atlantic Canada Friday.
A wind warning stretches across parts of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland with gusts up to 90 km/h expected through Saturday.
Westerly winds gusting to 100 km/h can be expected in parts of Newfoundland Saturday morning, Environment Canada warns in their statement.
High winds and rough sea conditions prompted the cancellation of some Marine Atlantic ferry sailings between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia Friday morning.
There is also a wind warning issued for the Confederation Bridge linking New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
