That is the wrong question to ask.  The real question is who has been
handing out 206.116/16 like they were dealing cards?  A quick look
at the announcments and in reveals a bunch of /24
spread out over Canada.

Historically, and currently, the Canadians crowd the top of 
the Tony Bates cidr list.  Why is that?


P.S.  I see iSTAR has 206.116/16.... why don't they announce it?
