Does anyone have a comprehensive list of the destinations served? The Wikipedia article for Air Canada destinations has a number of terminated destinations, and I believe some of those include routes flown with the CRJ-100/200. Did these flights us an "Air Canada" callsign, flown by mainline pilots?

To open US bound routes when the US-Canada open skies agreement went into effect in the late 90s.I’m curious about how CRJ’s ended up in the mainline fleet vs Jazz initially, and how they ultimately ended up in the Express fleets. It’s certainly unusual to see mainline CRJ’s.

YYZ to MCI, IAD, STL, MKE, BNA, PIT, cLE, MSP
YUL to PHL, BOS, DCA, IAD
YOW to LGA, ORD, DCA, RDU, BOS
YWG to ORD
YHZ to IAD, EWR
And October 30 1994 timetable when they were brand new:
And from other timetables 1995-1999 a few not listed in 2000:
YYZ-CLT ,DCA, RDU, oRD, CVG, ATL, PHL
That's all I can find. I do not see ORF but it may of been after 2000.
