London has devolved regional governance. Toronto is at the whim of the province.Municipalities are just legal fictions employed by the province as convenience. If the province were to consider granting Toronto sweeping powers, it would really only make sense as an organization fr the GTA. That said, Queens Park is already basically the regional government for Toronto. I don't see them conceding much power in this regard. I think Ontario will become more like the UK where it is all about London.
Only the City of Toronto has an average density vaguely close to London. Just Toronto alone is already 40% the landmass of Greater London. I don't know what stats can classifies as "Urban" versus "Metro", but that "Urban" area would be more spot-on size wise. (Way less dense though of course.)
I guess anything before the greenbelt.
There probably needs to be some sort of GTA/GTHA governance so that the region can plan as a unit. (As well as Waterloo and Niagara Regions)
