Ryan, VS started flying to YYZ in June with much fanfare etc. They pulled out suddenly in Sept. Although they flew to LGW, they provided competition for AC, BA, C3, TS etc.
I do recall reading that YVR was on their wish list as the 2nd Canadian city to be added....who knows, as the economy improves, maybe VS will move back into Canada.
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.
