Back in '79 Montreal and Toronto blocked the NHL/WHA merger because they didn't want any more teams in Canada and the merger stood to add another three teams to the Great White North. This led to outrage and a massive nationwide boycott of Molson in Canada that forced Montreal to switch it's vote and allow the merger (Toronto never did end it's opposition but fans only needed one of them to switch to get the merger through).
