I suspect your 2 Ex RAF C-130's are :

C-FNUL Ex. XV303
C-FNUM Ex. XV214

And the other's could be any of the following , there are 6 on Google Earth , the 2 Ex. RAF and 4 others , one without wings ( taken August 2016 ) plus some smaller fuselages behind them

130306 wfu Abbotsford
130310 wfu Abbotsford
130320 wfu Abbotsford
130324 wfu Abbotsford
130325 wfu Abbotsford

The following were known to be at Kelowna , not sure what the latest situation is with them .

109151/C-GULQ CC-109
109152/C-GLWF CC-109
109157/C-GPQY CC-109
109159/C-GTVJ CC-109
109160/C-GNDK CC-109
C-GKFY Convair 580
