Keep in mind the Canada/Hawaii market took a deep plunge back in the late 1990s as the USD/CDN $$$ exchange took a huge beating. Many Canadians even from the western provinces defected their winter time tropical getaways from Hawaii to the Dominican Republic. Charter companies especially pointed out the fact that POP/PUJ are almost equal distance as HNL/OGG to both YYC and YEG.

Quoting Connies4ever (Reply 1): Back in the day there was, and also YWG-HNL on AC. AC also for some time after the acquisition of CP maintained the YYZ-HNL-SYD service, which I think actually switched to YYZ-HNL-MEL for a while.
There has been nonstop YYC-HNL service off and on for almost 40 years. CP was first if memory correct about 1970 with about one seasonal nonstop a week.
