The reason that you can have 3 teams in NYC is because the NYC metro region has over 20 million people
For comparison, there are only 12 million in Ontario.
On top of that NYC has 3 distinct regions for teams, i'm not sure there is enough room/people for a second toronto team..
The New York metropolitan area has 3 hockey teams, 2 basketball teams, 2 baseball teams, 2 football teams, among others. Yes there's a lot more people which is why this is sustainable only in New York, but there's also split interest, not to mention hockey is the least popular of the four sports.
In Toronto, there's a hockey team, a basketball team and a baseball team. CFL is always going to be niche in Toronto just as college football is in NY. And hockey is special in Toronto; it's more like how Chicago has 2 baseball teams than the New York comparison.
