It's not as dramatic as you state. Westjet buys lots of 737ng's, and the 767 was popular with Canadian/Air Canada. The only thing is, Boeing lost the battle with Airbus when it comes to Air Canada; apart from their 767s and a few 744s, they are very Airbus oriented.
Some stuff might be factors;
1- Canada being culturally and economically more oriented on Europe (as member of the British Commonworld and with their French-speaking states) than the US.
2- Airbus probably offered planes which were fitting better in Air Canada's fleet and/or offering them cheap to get a hold in the Canadian market (and finally having 330/340 widebodies flying in the America's).

nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Westjet is a large Boeing customer.

WestJet just got 70 orders an options for 737NG's!

Air Canada buys a lot of Airbus because they better suit them, and the commonality is important, but combined with Canadi>n Airlines they do have 43 767's, which is a pretty big Boeing fleet, and although they will probably be replaced by Airbuses, CP does have 44 737's (although it is possible we will see 717's if the price is right).
