Any way to get the Bisons into MLB?
Buffalo has been a serious contender for expansion in the past, so it's quite possible. However, it's close enough to Toronto that I think it becomes a lot less likely after the Blue Jays are formed.

Probably since the Expos were formed, because once the NL was in Canada, the AL is likely to want to be there.

But if you can make that happen, you could have the alt-Blue Jays in Buffalo, two titles in 92 & 93 (butterflies, but you know), the Bills winning a couple of Superbowls, the Sabres winning the Stanley cup, and there is a buzz about the city. Whether that translates into improved city perfomance...

Probably not, but it at least takes some of the sting away. Maybe keeps a few people who'd otherwise leave the area from doing so.
