I was about to say the same thing. But rather than point out how big Toronto would be, I was going to point out how small some of the US populations would be. Fort Worth and Arlington wouldn't even contribute to the Dallas market using the Canadian CMA definition. Basically, if most people live and work in the same place, then they are their own CMA, which is why Hamilton and Oshawa aren't part the Toronto CMA, and why Burlington gets sucked into Hamilton and isn't part of Toronto.
