Actually, CP (Canadian Pacific) was purchased by Pacific Western first in 1987 and renamed Canadian Airlines International. In 2000 Canadian Airlines International was bought by Air Canada.

AC did not buy Canadian Pacific Air (CP). Pacific Western did and changed the name to Canadian Airlines International. Air Canada bought (merged) with Canadian Airlines International (CAI)PointsHubby wrote: ↑ Not a bad video.
Old enough to remember TCA and the launch of Air Canada... as well as the massive expansion right around 1967 Canada’s Centennial.
That thru the early 1980s were the hay day for AC
Actually the story of AC Buying out CP was mentioned 2x in the video

"in 1987, Canadian Pacific Air Lines was sold, along with Quebec's Nordair, to Calgary-based Pacific Western Airlines (PWA) for $300 million. PWA assumed the airline's debt of $600 million. In April 1987, PWA announced that the new name of the merged airline would be Canadian Airlines International. In 2000, Canadian Airlines was taken over by and merged into Air Canada."
