An Air Canada Airbus A320-200, registration C-FLSU performing flight AC-791 from Toronto,ON (Canada) to Los Angeles,CA (USA) with 152 people on board, was climbing out of Toronto's runway 33R when the crew received a low pressure indication for the green hydraulic system. The crew levelled off at 10,000 feet and entered a holding for working the according checklists. About 15 minutes later the crew declared emergency reporting hydraulic problems and advised they'd return Toronto needing to stop on the runway expecting very hot brakes. The crew burned off fuel and performed a safe landing on runway 33R about one hour after departure. The aircraft was towed off the runway, the runway was closed for 16 minutes.

The Canadian TSB reported maintenance replaced the green ground service manifold and returned the aircraft to service.
