So why not such a brand in Canada. The NFL could be in Toronto. And CFL and Buffalo, don't fret. They could be an All-Canada brand and play in the east (Montreal) and west (Vancouver), hitting all of the CFL stadiums from one home (camp) week to another. The TV ratings in Canada could amount to vast amounts of money.
Another MLB and NBA team could float from Vancouver to Montreal. And as far as league/division/conference alignment is concerned, the team could be placed as an average (being Central) or an east or west division team alignment, freeing up the ease with which other expansion is considered.

Lumberjacks, Leafs, Grizzlies,
What about the Canadian Shield?
Even for hockey and soccer, I think North Coast would be cool. Markets like Saskatoon, Quebec City and Newfoundland would love a stake in a team, even if it isn't wholesale their's.
What about the Canadian Coastals for a baseball brand housed in Vancouver and Montreal?
I have talked about this more in my blog:
