I think Pouz was more so referring to the suggestions of Hamilton and Kitchener

It's not so much the local area but it's the greater region that you draw from. Seattle has a population of about 600,000 but the Metro area is almost 3.8 million people.

When I read numbers about Seattle like that I never understand their lack of a team. Especially with the proximity to Vancouver

The Kitchener area they has 2.7 million people within a 45 minute drive. The numbers really jump if it gets to within an hour's drive. 

Also the Southern Ontario TV market is a very large one. The local radio and TV rights will generate a TON of cash.
