Jeremy, I agree as I said above, BA can take people on to other destinations with their massive network out of LHR, and the same holds true for AC out of YYZ. So yes, that is fairly even. What I wasn't aware of was the network that BMI has out of LHR. If what you say is true, then there is a lot to gain for AC in LHR. But I still think that Germany is very important for Air Canada, and is why they want to increase frequencies, for example to Munich. Lufthansa does have a huge network out of Germany, and Air Canada profits from this.
