It's amazing how many great skylines there are in Canada, compared to my country The Netherlands. Canada has only twice the numer of residents (33 mln and 16,5 mln), and is way bigger! Still there are many more great skylines then in my highly populated little country which has only 3 or 4 real skylines and for the rest only some stand alone little towers here and there...

My top 3 for Canada:

1. Vancouver, simply adorable.
2. Toronto, impressive stuff with some real tall, it's a close finish!
3. Calgary (with a great olympic skating oval nearby, that counts for me! World cup is live on my TV right now!)

Edit

I have to mention Montreal. Must be an amazing city to be! But the skyline is a bit dull, but I love the pictures with ice and snow like a city in a polar area!

It's sad that everybody is voting Toronto just because it's big. Vancouver is obviously the best...

There's nothing obvious about it, Ervin. If most people are voting Toronto it's because they "obviously" feel it 'is' the best. This is subjective. You should learn that people are going to have different opinions than you and it doesn't make them wrong.

I enjoy all different types of skylines, so from Toronto to Vancouver and Calgary to Montreal, I'm a fan of it all.

1) Toronto
2) Vancouver
3) Calgary
4) Montreal

(1 & 2 are almost tied and 3 & 4 are almost tied as well)

Toronto Skyline is in the same level than the biggest cities in the world, above all, for a country with only 33 M. population. Congratulations for your cities.

Madrid, on this photo, looks more like Salt Lake City.
