There is room for other pro teams in a province the size of Quebec.
Football I agree, but it would never happen. I just never heard of Montreal being a huge basketball supportive place, was more or less my own opinion really.
Basketball is big in Halifax though you are right, but we'd never be able to support any pro team here in a major league so it doesn't matter. Happy we have the NBL though, and surprised they didn't include places farther west for teams. Oh well its the first year.
