Recent DA20 Issues

Every once in a while, I check the national report of the Civil Aviation Daily Occurrence Report System (Released by Transport Canada daily). Today, I noticed that there were a lot of reports concerning DA20s, in fact 4 in the last 2 days. Although none were major, and no injuries occurred, they are still beneficial to read, so that you can be aware of any problems that other pilots are facing. From TC (CADORS):
