Toronto is a distant, distant last place on all fronts by any measure adjusted for population.
Toronto is a terrible place to play or watch hockey.
It's distant even to US cities like Boston and the Twin Cities. The Boston area has all the big-league attractions that Toronto does yet it packs rinks for a dozen AHL and US college teams.
Acceptance is the first step to change, get on with it.
