Sorry for off topic here but I have to say Toon is a better city than Regina in term of the beauty and city urban planning, unlike Regina there is virtually no one way street in Saskatoon and its streets are also pretty wide and most major civic buildings and entertainment centres are in downtown. Toon is also the smallest major city in Canada has a small but tidy freeway system that circle the whole city and eventually end at downtown.

Part of Surrey's growing skyline, Surrey is the second largest city in the metro Vancouver region but it will over take Vancouver as the number 1 in population in a few years.

Does that mean it will soon be renamed the Surrey CMA?

The Scotia Bank tower appears taller than the BMO.

It does! Just perspective though because it is not quite as tall. Hawk posted some nice photos of the Entertainment district downtown Toronto. Here is one of them:
