Where Have the Twin Otters Gone?

AE7I0524.jpgA few years ago we spent some time in Victoria on Vancouver Island.  Victoria has a lot of floatplane activity and, at the time, an airline called West Coast Air was operating with a large fleet of Twin Otters.  Since that time, West Coast was taken over by Harbour Air.  Harbour Air is the dominant operator at Vancouver.  However, while we were there, we saw only one Twin Otter.  A check online seems to suggest that they have focused more on the Otters and Beavers and reduced the Twin Otter fleet.  I assume they are not so economical for the type of operations they undertake but, if anyone has any more information about what happened, pleas let me know.
