I'm not saying it always happens, but the official policy says they can rebook up to full Y.

Yes, because you don't know how many are in J at that point, because upgrades could happen for the whole way, pax could not show, LMU's for the whole way, etc. The number would probably change a lot before the takeoff of 33 out of YYZ.

So because the numbers could change, they shouldn't show the list?

I understand 33's different than most flights, but wouldn't it still be nice to show it?

And you're suggesting they're intentionally not showing it, which I don't think we've proven

Ok, this is weird, I still can't get access to the stand-by (upgrade) list for J on AC 33 out of YVR tonight.

Can someone with an Android device give it a try and make sure I'm not making a mistake?

Edit: How are you getting the list?

Ya, it works for me now too, maybe it was just a glitch for a second?

So it looks like employee "DEL, C" is waiting for J on AC 33 EX-YVR tonight, and is currently the only person on the waitlist.
