I recently visited CYYZ and the nation of Canada for the first time a few weeks ago and now I'm really interested in all things Canadian aviation.
In my years of spotting and visiting airports, I've seen several Canadian carriers that no longer exist. And recent news of Air Transat looking for a buyer and WestJet getting purchased by an investment firm got me thinking more about this subject.
It seems like airlines in Canada come and go often, with the exception of Air Canada. When I think back to airlines like Canadian, Skyservice, CanJet, Royal, Canada 3000, Harmony, Jetsgo, Zip and Zoom, I'm amazing how none of these are around today. It seems like today the big players are Air Canada, WestJet, Air Transat, Flair Air and Sunwing? How many planes do these airlines lease for extra lift during the peak travel season? I'd love to start an open discussion about the airlines (past and present) of Canada.

See the building at the back? That's where they were based.
They were a charter airline. More here: viewtopic.php?t=115971
