Looks very bad for the left side of the aircraft.

Typical Air Canada Landing. Slam It On The Ground And Say “Eh. That Wasn’t To Bad!”

I hate to tell you, but I’ve been on Air Canada multiple times and most of the time the pilots make the gear kiss the runway. I can recall this one time where we had a rainy and cloudy day that I was flying, and the pilots made a really nice landing.
Even Mr. Dantorp Aviation agrees with the aforesaid.

That’s because the weather was bad yesterday. Very wet here.

Wow that must have been quite the landing to blow off a tire. Is that what looks like mud on the side of the aircraft or are those some sort of scorch marks?

That’s dirt, as I expressed above.

More info, it landed during a winter thunderstorm.

Looks like it went mudding!

To me it looks like the aircraft did some off roading in the middle of the australian outback in the middle of the wet season

Nah it would be dirtier
