Lots of variations depending on what you like or can hold. I personally front or back load my schedule to have pairings with 1 or two days off in between then a week plus off at once. Usually 12 to 15 days off a month. YUL guys who are YYZ based may like 6 day pairings to minimize a commute, some YYZ guys like max per diems, some like turns and working 7 to 10 days a month.

It varies a lot.

If you're living in YYZ, enough to rent a closet, eat the premium KD with Heinz AND dogs.

Take a look around on the salary forum - pilots agreement is posted here. It'll give you the most honest answer, but you have to imagine first year is going to be hard to break 60k all said and done.

First year would work out to around 60k its true, although that does not include Per Diems and expenses (dry cleaning allowance, shoe allowance etc etc)
Per diems in a busy month up to 1700$
Slower month (shoulder season like NOV or MAY) less than that for sure.
Second year you'd make over 70k.
Third year easily mid 80s.
Year 4 I did over 100k without overtime, so its not amazing but its not closet eating KD either in my opinion.
