Primary reason is that only about 60% of OHL games are televised and the cost involved in setting up cameras/monitoring specifically for the purpose of goal judging is somewhat prohibitive.
Even the "goal cams" used during the playoffs were, at times, unreliable due to bad camera angles (you don't get shots directly over the goal line as in the NHL). I recall one London playoff game where a goal was disallowed and on review it appeared to cross the line however the camera was somewhat in front of the net so the angle was deceptive.
