The large population, in this region, can be deceiving. At least in terms of Maple Leafs fans. Granted the Toronto logo is prevalent. But, there are other factors to consider.

The noticeable amount of non-Leaf fans around southern Ontario. Some moved to the Toronto area, from other parts of the country, for employment purposes and have maintained their old allegiance.

Then there's the homegrown fans - like myself - who, during their youth, decided to cheer for another club. Other than the local one ... Toronto.
