Help me out here, what's the external differences between the West German Leo 1 and the Canadian Leo 1?

Lots and lots of little differences, really… the pintle-mounted machinegun would be a C6 GMPG, the antenna mountings were a little different I believe, it had a little wind sensor on the top of the turret (looked like a chess pawn), the optical rangefinder would be replaced with a laser rangefinder, the mantlet would have a "PZB 200" low-light camera in a cage (probably the thing on the mantlet in the first model, although it is on the wrong side if that is the case), the whitelight searchlight on the left side of the turret looked different than the regular Leopard A3…

Here is a good photo album highlighting the differences:
