That’s true, but there are multiple Dash 8 flights to Vancouver from Comox, plus the smaller Coastal flights from Campbell River, and multiple flights from Nanaimo.
Keep in mind, YQQ does have direct service to Calgary and Edmonton and WJ trialing direct YYZ once a week service this summer. Nanaimo also has Calgary and Edmonton service with AC doing a couple days a week to YYZ.
Both Nanaimo and Comox WJ service to Vancouver has been replaced with WestJet Link Saab 340's, so just 33 seats
