Canada didn't have a relevant soccer league before MLS. Toronto was an entirely new team, Vancouver and Montreal were already playing in other American-based leagues.

That's why I made the comparison of MLS expanding to Canada like KHL expanding to Latvia or Ukraine. That's understandable. But KHL expanding to Sweden or Switzerland would be like MLS expanding to Mexico or Brazil. Makes zero sense and would never happen, even if it resulted in a "western hemisphere league" which had a better product and better competed with the European leagues.
