I also wonder if the municipal-provincial dynamic is as bad as people suggest. The reality is that people in metro Toronto basically have to approve of any provincial government that gets elected. This is true of most of the large metros in each province. Some provinces have gotten stuck in a weird state where rural areas get disproportionate voting power and hold the balance of power too often, but I don't think Ontario is like this.
Not in Manitoba where 32 of the 58 seats (I think) in the Provincial Legislature are located within the city limits.
