No Sears Tower

Which BTW would eat the Petronis towers for breakfast.

Well, Toronto might have the 6th biggest stock exchange in the world, but the Financial Times never give it any respect. No shock here.

As of Aug 2007, Toronto is the 7th largest stock market in the world. Shanghai and HK will overtake London within 2 years and will become world 2nd and 4th largest stock market by 2010

Well for one thing they should have included the iconic buildings of at least the top 10 stock exchanges.

Thanks for the info, but 6th or 7th doesn't change much. The fact remains that the FT completely ignores the Toronto Stock Exchange, and they routinely report closing numbers for exchanges much smaller than Toronto. As the list shows, it's even bigger than the Deutsch Boerse. (Abit surprising). If it was 11th or 12th, it would make sense, but it's not. The deliberate exclusion is just bizarre.

And that picture shows at least 20 major buildings, and at least 40 smaller ones. They couldn't even put one Toronto building in there? You'd think they were deliberately trying to piss us off. It's been going on for decades.
