There are plenty of non white hockey fans in the GTA who come from first generation immigrant families, and there are plenty of OHL teams that are located in predominantly white towns who choose to relocte.
With so many entertainment options in a city like the GTA, the OHL isn't exactly on the top of the list even for a hardcore fan like myself.
