Short answer is $$$.

Longer answer has to do with lots of politics, plus the track surface is in rough shape and needs to be replaced. That can get overcome with funds, but all the new races added to the calendar are investing huge $$$ to new tracks and facilities, and while Montreal is a drivers and fan favourite, it does not make F1 the same money as all the newer circuits. Unfortunately the city (Montreal), province (Quebec) and feds all have to cooperate in order to get the race back.

Don't hold you breath....
