AC has quite a few in you put it's CP history into play ....
You're missing Eastern Provincial Airways, the regional carrier and 737 operator based in YHZ
that was purchased by CP
Air in the mid-1980s. You could also add Canadian Airlines' regional carrier Ontario Express that operated quite a few BAe Jetstream 31s on shorthaul routes from YYZ
, mostly to points in Ontario.
And Canadian Pacific Air Lines itself was the result of the merger of 10 small western Canadian airlines in 1942. Several of the other airlines mentioned were also involved in their own earlier mergers, e.g. PWA
-based Transair in 1972, and later acquired YVR
-based B.C. Airlines.
