To me it seems that some cities' lists were just copied from wikipedia or somewhere else and include the structural and not the roof height.

You're likely correct there. Some cities don't seem to have data on roof height at all so it's quite suspicious.

I know, but to us it's the size of a small province. To put things in perspective, England and southern Ontario are the same size.

Here is another fact to provide some perspective, England has a population of around 53million compared to 12million in Southern Ontario.

Shows how sparsely populated Southern Ontario is compared to the motherland.

In fact despite Canada being such a huge country (in terms of area) it has a very small population of only 35million compared with the U.K.'s 63million.

Yes, we have tons of land/person. You could fit England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Denmark inside British Columbia (944,735 sq km) and still have space for Albania. Canada is a nation with massive untapped potential. It's inevitable that Canada will have a large population one day.

Regarding 600 ft buildings. Are there any in the UK outside of London?
