What does Halifax on 4 mean? These other cities don't have large skylines, but they're also very small cities. Toronto is 7 times larger than Winnipeg and 16 times larger than Victoria. In a country of only 33 million people, what's impressive is how many good skylines there are: Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, and Calgary are all quite good. Then there are a significant number of small, but decent skylines from one end of the country to the other.

Given time, these others might one day grow to rival the bigger Canadian skylines. You'd be shocked at how small the Vancouver and Calgary skylines were just a few decades ago. Now look at them!

That's where you folks were hiding... It took me a while to find this thread.


Imo, my Regina's skyline is the best consider it has only 200,000 residents.

Charlotte's been cheating on you.

Regina is very good for a metro of 200,000! It will look even better with a dome in the back ground.

I don't trust that woman anymore!

I hope they will build that proposed dome stadium in Regina.

I suspect that Vancouver will start to build significantly taller buildings going forward. Shangri-La is just the tip of the iceberg. Vancouver has nowhere to go, but up.

Well, I don't know anyone from Saskatchewan so if that dome gets built maybe we should catch the Roughriders' first game there together. I suspect I'd make better company at a football game than Charlotte any way.

Definitely, "25 cents joke" would very likely happen if I took Charlotte to a football game.



25 cents joke

A guy took his blond girlfriend to her first football game. They had
great seats right behind their team's bench.

After the game, the guy asked her how she liked the experience.
"Oh, I really liked it," the blonde replied. "Especially the
tight pants and all the big muscles, but I just couldn't understand why they
were killing each other over 25 cents."

Dumbfounded, her date asked, "What do you mean?"

"Well, at the beginning, they flipped a coin, one team got it and
then for the rest of the game, everyone kept screaming 'Get
the quarterback! Get the quarterback!'
I'm like, Helloooooooooooo - it's only 25 cents!"

Really? I'm loving Winnipeg at the moment ... when the museum for human rights or whatever is finished it'll be more respected I suppose. For a city of its size, I think Winnipeg has a very good thing going on.

How about a 3 way? I like groups, as long as I get to sit in the middle, as per usual.

Winnipeg is boring when it comes to skyline. It should have a few more skyscrapers. It does reserve that too, don't you think so? ... at least 2x more shiny gleaming blue glassy 60+ skyscrapers... btw, does Winnipeg has height restrictions too? like Vancouver and Ottawa.
