All of the boroughs within metro shared transit, police, public housing and many other urban services.

All of the surrounding towns and cities such as Mississauga, Brampton, Vaughan, Markham etc, have their own mayors and councils and are also within the boundaries of the suburban regional municipalities such as Peel, York, Durham and Halton (the outer GTA) that surround the city proper.

Basically, Mississauga was never in contention to become part of the city of Toronto.

so glad someone clarified someone else's ignorance. thank you.
and yes, Mississauga is a suburb, but very much it's own city with absolutely no desire to be absorbed by it's neighbour Toronto. It is so frustrating having to hear some of the negative comment's about Mississauga from, for the most part, Torontonians. I lived in Mississauga for 34 years.. and though far from perfect, I overwhelmingly have the most positive things to say about the city. It has one hell of a booming skyline too which continues to impress and evolve every year.

TORONTO: Etobicoke (pronounced E-toe-bee-coe) This is a shot of the Humber Bay skyline in the western 'suburb' of Etobicoke. In the distance you can see a ridge. It's the Niagara escarpment. If you follow that ridge for 60 km to the left it terminates in Niagara Falls.

Some of Metro Manila's suburban skylines,

Eastwood City



Filinvest City



On the other hand, major CBDs such as Makati or Ortigas Centre, were originally suburban developments but with Metro Manila's expansion and economic shift, both have become the most important CBDs in The Metro and have composed the urban or central core of the city.

While Bonifacio Global City was originally built as an extension of Makati's CBD.

So Makati, Bonifacio Global City and Ortigas do not count as suburban skylines!
