My understanding is that nobody has a 2nd diverse fiber route north of
the great lakes from Winnipeg to Toronto.   Every provider makes use of
a fiber route south of the great lakes thru the US in order to provide
diversity.   

The following map shows that the CN rail and CP Rail lines across over
each other at multiple times from Winnipeg to Toronto.
