Telus. Rogers likes to overbill, Bell is a sinking ship.

Motorola Milestone. Droid with a locked bootloader on a 3G+ HSPA+ network. (Telus) Telus is also getting the HTC Desire. Rogers has the...Magic? I don't know. I know Telus has the Moto Milestone, HTC Dream and the Moto Backflip. Bell has the HTC Legend, the Moto Dext (what a stupid name), and the Samsung Galaxy.
C. Are there any phones anyone knows of on the Canadian networks that are comparable to the Motorola Droid and all it's goodness?
Now I'm not saying all these devices compare to the Droid, I'm just letting you know what's there. Android is nowhere near as popular here in Canada as it is in the US, which leaves us with less selection. (Is it REALLY that hard to send up a Droid X or Incredible with a GSM slot?!)
To be completely honest though, I would pick Telus. Rogers are crooks and anyone who grew up here in the 90's has about $50,000 worth of reasons not to trust Bell.
To the ^^^ post above, the T-Mobile banded Nexus One was compatible with WIND, (who has such a small service area, don't bother unless you're moving to Toronto) and the AT&T banded (I think it's bands 2 and 5) Nexus One was compatible with obviously Rogers HSPA network, as well as Bell and Telus' 3G+ HSPA+ networks.
