You have made a good point in your post

If this were a truly Canberra flight, it would make better financial sense to run a triangle type flight, rather than stopping at Sydney twice
Less fuel, landing fees etc
More importantly, a 1 stop Canberra to Doha and a NON STOP Doha to Canberra

But me thinks that it would be hard to sell Doha to Sydney via Canberra for those traveling to and from Sydney (which will make up 90% of the passengers

Conclusion
This is not a flight that is aimed at generating traffic to and from Canberra, more so just an additional service to Sydney

Solution
If there is that much demand from Sydney to Doha, then might I suggest that there is plenty of opportunity for VA or QF to fly the route, as per the bilateral agreement.....
