I have used the RJ on Air Canada's ATL-YYZ route twice.  Equates well to
a slightly miniaturised MD-80 - ie. very good ride.  I also had the
opportunity to take a CL-600 from Sheerwater, NS to Uplands (YOW) - very
similar ride to the longer coupled RJ.

As an aside; Air Canada operates with a single cabin crew member which
means you get a Purser;so, well trained too.
