Yes, America West does fly to Canada. They currently fly to Vancouver (YVR). There are two flights daily, both using A319 equipment. The first flight departs at around 8am, and the next at about lunch time from YVR. The arrivals come in at late-morning, and at 10pm into YVR.
Hope this clears it up.

I don't know about their plans, but I would think Canada would be an excellent market for HP to try to expand into. If they could contract out everything on the ground (including gate agents from another airline, etc) I think they would have tonnes of potential to fly to the prairies from PHX during the winter. If they could get an impulse buying market (ie-weekend trips) they'd do fine, although I'm not sure they'd compete well with holiday packages by the charters for trips planned a lot in advance. There is also potential for selling it as a summer market too. Also, sheer size would indicate YYZ as a great market for a couple flights a day year round. I kind of think that if they can make YVR (one of the warmer cities in Canada) work to PHX, they could make other (colder) cities work quite nicely. But that's just my opinion, I have no idea if they're going to do anything on that.
