Only a thought...
I guess so, but Ontario's Population is FAR, FAR Larger than Alberta's is, London is like a "Medium Sized" City for Ontario.
(Or @ the very least nationally).
Toronto is the Major one, & Detroit is a Major one for Michigan.
(I still feel it somewhat applies just on a larger scale by virtue of Ontario being larger).
Calgary & Edmonton are BOTH Major Cities respectively for their provinces as well as Nationally for Canada.
Just like Detroit is a Major City for Michigan & the United States, & Toronto is a Major City for Ontario & Canada as a whole.
Sure u can say that for the Drummondville Example.
But the 2 Largest Cities it is sandwiched between, aren't as close in Population as Toronto vs Detroit, or Edmonton vs. Calgary in this Comparison.
Montreal & Quebec City are VERY different Sizes. For Toronto it is Larger than Detroit's Metro by maybe 2 & Half Million.
As opposed to over 3 in the Case for Montreal vs. Quebec City.
