For some reason without putting regards to the population, I've always thought Canada had some sizable cities that could fill up atleast a top ten skyline list.

Going to the skylines list, apparently many countries have atleast 5 skyline cities, but most of those cities are probably less known.

Beyond the US and China, I'd say there are only 3 countries with 4-5 skyline cities: Japan, Australia, and Canada. Brazil arguably has more, but they're all so short.

Regarding Canada, we really only have 4 significant skyline cities: Toronto, Calgary, Montreal, and Vancouver. There seem to be 4 that could join them in the not too distant future: Burnaby, Edmonton, Niagara Falls, and Mississauga.

Is Edmonton developing into a significant Canadian skyline city to join the big 4? I'd say it will if it's not there already:

Edmonton, Alberta

In Burnaby (a suburb of Vancouver)alone, there are already 4 sets of skyline with Metrotown leading the way with 2 towers (45 and 46 floors), 3 towers (34, 37, 38 fls) and 1 with 55 floors are currently under construction and more projects have already been approved and just waiting for digging work to start. Burnaby is definitely becoming a force to be reckon with.

Is there any office planned for Burnaby? I find skylines really don't come together till the office buildings start making their mark. That said, I wouldn't be surprised to see BC's tallest buildings go up here (or Metrotown) rather than downtown Vancouver.

Wouldn't it be nice if they build the tallest tower out side of Vancouver? I'm sick and tired of that dumb view cone effect policy which limit the height of the buildings in downtown. There are three office towers in metrotown currently, one of them is brand new and the cladding installing is just about finished.

I'm tired of that view cone tunnel vision as well. City planners in Vancouver seemed to have forgotten that mountains aren't the only things that can be beautiful. Why can't beautiful buildings be the focal point? People move to cities for the built form. People move to the wilderness for mountains and trees.
