You can occasionally follow these journeys on web sites. One reason that BIRK-BGSF-CYFB or the reverse is becoming more 'popular' than the shorter BIRK-BGBW-CYYR is that getting stuck two or five days at BGSF waiting on weather is significantly cheaper than BGBW. Neither is cheap, but BGSF is cheaper. Also it is easier to take a commercial flight out of BGSF if the weather requires abandoning the flight for several days.
Another thing is that the weather at BGSF seems to be less likely to interrupt the flight than at BGBW.
Someone is flying a C-172 today from CYYR - BGBW
I also see that in the past week the following aircraft have made the CYYR-BGBW flight - N995MH - Beech Duke; N1488C - Cirrus SR20; N720PA - Piper PA-28; N138CM - Piper Malibu Mirage; N860PC - Cirrus SR22
In the reverse route - there has been a TBM6 and a C-210
There was a Cirrus SR22 which flew CYFB-BGSF
