Why am I picking up AM stations in NYC and Boston on my car radio?

I live about an hour west of Toronto yet instead of getting CFRB 1010 from Toronto, I'm getting 1010 WINS out of New York City (albeit not terribly clear). I also can pick up WBZ 1030 from Boston and the signal is crystal clear, particularly in the evenings. I would think that since I'm in close proximity to Toronto, I'd pick up AM sations from there. CFRB 1010 does come in sometimes but not consistently. What gives? My car is a Mini Cooper S if it matters.
