Not to mention it doesn't impede the possibility of adding a team to Hamilton eventually the same way that adding a team to say Mississauga would (since Mississauga would compete for fans from Oakville/Burlington/Guelph/K-W, all of which are closer to Hamilton).
The key here is north Toronto -- near the 407 -- in many ways easier to acces than downtown. People would come from all the towns you mention.
