Interesting topic. I don't know much about the maritime scene, but I do remember that (pre-C3) Canjet used to fly YHZ-YSJ, unless I'm horribly mistaken. I remember thinking that was uqite an interesting little route. It would certainly save a long drive/ferry, but I guess it hasn't been worth re-starting.
As for YYZ-YQY, didn't Jetsgo fly this route just last summer?

Canjet does a YYT-YQM-YYZ flight as well as a return on the same route.
AC used to have a YYT-YOW flight a couple of years back. The flight number was 613 and it was a DC-9, however, it stopped in YHZ first and then YOW.
I think AC used to fly the YYZ-YDF route many years ago using DC-9's, but I'm not certain about it.
Royal Airlines used to do this route before continuing on to YYT during the summer about 10 years ago using B727's. I believe SG did the same.

Back in the 80s, AC used to fly YOW-YYG. CanJet 1 very breifly flew YOW-YSJ-YHZ before the merger with C3. More recently, WS for a few months flew YOW-YQX and YOW-YYT, 2 and 3x weekly respectively, but only 1-way. The return was via YHM (WS used to have many 1-way nonstop routes to or from YOW...no wonder they failed being oddly only 1-way). WS used to also operate weekend service YOW-YQM. Jazz until 2003 flew YOW-YFC for years. As you can see YOW has lost everything to the Maritimes except YOW-YHZ, once again becoming the spoke to YYZ & YUL and to a lesser extent YHZ, to the east.

It wasn't too many years ago that I flew YUL-YJT non-stop aboard an AC 727. It was a seasonal upgauge from the normal DC-9, during the fishing season. It was funny because I knew we'd deplane through the airstair in the tail. When everyone got up to deplane, I got up and turned to face the rear. Everyone thought I was nuts until the FA announced that we'd disembark from the rear!
And you know what, the flight was full. Now I think you can't even catch a Dash-8 to Stephenville...

When Canada 3000 was around they had a lot of interesting flights out of YQM. They served Toronto year round and in the winter they flew to Florida nonstop (PIE and MCO) as well as a few destinations in the Carribean like Cuba and the Dominican Republic. During the summer they even had YQM-CDG flight!! Now that Canada 3000 no longer exists Corsair of France last year did a YQM-ORY flight. At YSJ Air Atlantic used to fly direct to BOS and so did Northwest Airlink. Being from the Maritimes, I love it when I see a new carrier has selected to fly to the region. I was very pleased this year to see that Northwest is starting a seasonal DTW-YYG flight!

Lets see, I remember flying many times into YSJ on AC on DC9s and Vickers Vicounts. I did this from BOS. YUL. and YYZ. I do remember at times also stopping in YFC, YMQ (Moncton?) as well as Yarmouth. (Sorry dont know the code.
Any one still in YSJ? Whis is the airport like now? I have not been there in about 10 years!

I live in Saint John and YSJ Airport has been very nicely renovated. It is still a very small airport but with a spotless and modern terminal!! Not much exciting for services though....3 AC CRJ's each day to Toronto, 3 AC Dash 8's to Montreal and 4 BEH's to Halifax. Thats it!! The Past 2 summers Jetsgo has flown here but obviously that won't be happening again!!!
