Montreal is by far a better city than Toronto and the Expos desbite opperating on a fraction of the budget as the Blue Jays still produced interesting and respectable teams. Unfortunately the strike in 1994 pissed off a lot of Montrealers and the team lost their fan base. Many people also blame the inadequate stadium for their demise.
However you look at it, The Expos were a great asset to a great city and it is too bad Montreal has lost that dimension. Nevertheless Toronto is still full of worthless moneygrabing bastards and they will never have a city as cool as Montreal no matter what they do.
