From a source I picked up news that BMI will start flying to YYZ soon dumping (not sure) their AC codeshare. Can anyone confirm this or is it jsut another rumour up in the air that isn't confirmed yet?
Is there even any speculation about this route so that BA have competition?

The extra service may not be ANU, could be a different region of the world. If, and when, the YYZ service is announced (May be a good month to book it) , I would imagine that AC will be codesharing it.

Would love to see AC resume/return YYZFCO. According to the Station Manager at FCO, AC may not be able to return to Italy for up to a year, because of some clause within Italian labour laws. AC attempted to replace its own staff with a contracted Aeroporti di Roma staff. While a similar scenario took place at GLA and ZRH, this tactic is a no-no in Italy which may result in a year long moratorium.

The 767 in question is the 767-200ER.
According to the Canada/Italy bilateral, Alitalia and Air Canada are not allowed to fly side by side on any Canada-Italy route. Hence, if AC wanted YYZ-FCO, it would only be able to do so from YUL (which is the right thing to do given that AZ now has the COMPLETE lock on Toronto-Italy with dailies to MXP and FCO without AC codeshare).
If AC goes back to FCO, its from YUL. Unless AZ suspends something from out of YYZ which is unlikely. (Funny how AZ has threathened to pull out of Toronto about 10 times this year, due to high fees....)
