Ottawa has a better core? Sure, no argument here. Is that the end of the discussion? Absolutely not, unless you're a fan of black-and-white oversimplification.

You haven't expressed much in terms of actually wanting to discuss this, though, so I'm gonna end this here.
San Jose-Edmonton isn't a fair comparison. San Jose is declining while Edmonton is rising. Ottawa and Toronto are both in a rebuild right now. And Ottawa's better core gives them a huge advantage in building towards the future, considering they will be the role players. Hence the term "core"
