Here are the passenger numbers handled at select Canadian airports in 2010. (Some figures are until Oct or Nov 2010 only)
YEG - 6,089,099 (+0.0%) (disappointing)
YOW - 4,473,894 (+5.7%)
YQB - 1,190,088 (+15.0%) (impressive, considering the proximity to YUL and YUL's year over year gain as well)
YUL - til Nov only 11,943,499 (+6.0%)
YYC - til Nov only 11,589,865 (+4.0%)
YVR - til Oct only 14,248,464 (+3.6%) (Weak, considering the Olympics and all)
YYZ - til Nov only 29,269,599 (+4.7%)
All in all, Eastern Canada faired better than Western Canada, with YYZ, YUL, YOW and even YQB all having better increases than the big 3 out west.
YUL should be close to 13 million pax handled in 2010, but i don't think they will get it, due to the snow storms in Europe during December and also the one in NYC. I wouldn't mind being wrong though !
YQB, with all the additional transborder flights in 2010, plus increased presence by Porter, really showed an impressive growth, and has been for the last 3-4 years, so much so that the airport authority is scrambling to expand once again the terminal building, which they did only 2 years ago...
BTW, checked YHZ and still no numbers for 2010, also checked YWG and their number are only until Sept, plus there was no total, so i didn't bother counting.
Anyone with other numbers, please feel free to share.
