Toronto is by far Canada's best skyline, and it's only getting better!

The best part? Toronto is a fairly young city when compared to other large cities around the world, and we are now starting to plan our greatest landmark projects; Mirvish and Ghery, Oxford Place, One Yonge, Massey Tower, the entire waterfront, among many other amazing projects are in the works, and it only looks good for the city! Especially since in the future, we'll have a different mayor!

Toronto has the best skyline, but hopefully it won't be a one horse race forever. I'd much rather have 3-4 skylines all jockeying for the top spot.

Toronto will pretty much be the only serious contender in the near/mid future. However I do have to say based on current development Calgary is the next best bet. While it lacks scale and size relative to Toronto, it has a very interesting and diverse collection shapes and colors in its skyline. Toronto's weak point is style and variety; White\brown boxes from the 60-70's to green\grey\blue boxes in the new millennium.

Like Paris' Eiffel tower, the CN tower provides the exclamation point to Toronto's first-place skyline ranking. Ironically enough, some of the city's best shots are taken from that very vantage point.

As the undisputed second-best Canadian skyline, Vancouver is severely underrated, as indicated by the huge gap in votes cast between itself and the top-ranked metropolis cited above.

I never know whether to put Calgary in 3rd or Vancouver. Otherwise your top 10 is almost identical to mine.

I'd torn between Vancouver and Montreal for second place, but I'd put Calgary in fourth place, personally!
