I think this DC-10 was owned by Canadian. Did MTV buy it? Or just leasing it? Have the re-done the interior? any info on this plane would be appreciated.

The Canadian DC-10 was painted to sport MTV logos. I saw it in the dark sitting outside CP's Vancouver hangar on Saturday night, From what I could see, it had a blue tail with a circular logo.
