Best guess as to why there are no Canadian teams in the NFL is most of the major cities have a CFL team and the NFL may not think a team could survive against established CFL teams.

I wonder if a team would work in Vegas just because there is so much else to do there sort of like in LA.

Mexico City would be an interesting proposition. They have played exhibition games there in the past and they usually pack 100,000 plus in for those games. Question there would be is the city affluent enough to support 8 games a year?

I would have the same questions about Orlando as well. The state is not as big as California and Orlando's market may be a bit too close to Jacksonville and Tampa to survive. Especially with all of the major college football that is in Florida as well.
