It is not really about a country, but about specific leagues and markets. Basketball and baseball exist at the major league level in Canada only in Toronto. Vancouver already lost a basketball franchise (Grizzlies to Memphis) and Montreal a baseball franchise (Expos to DC). Apparently those major leagues sports weren't able to work in those markets.
