It does, with the only difference that Edmonton's skyline is made up of nicely cladded office buildings while Burnaby's is mostly residential towers with exposed concrete. From this angle they do look similar though.

I'm not sure what it is, but Canadian cities do have a certain look to them. Cities that you'd think could never look similar do from certain angles.

In few more years, Burnaby will have more towers than Edmonton but you are right skylines made up of condos don't look as good.

Vancouver is beautiful, but it still needs a taller one or an icon.

Toronto is pretty dense too but we have more midrise condos for sure.

That was true before, but won't be going forward. Vancouver's downtown core may still be slightly ahead when it comes to highrises per square km, but it's already fallen behind Toronto's core in population density. In other words, Toronto's core is taller and at the rate things are unfolding will be ahead in the density of highrises per square km as well.

Imo, Vancouver hasn't made efficient use of expensive land in its core. They really should have been building 50-80 floors instead of the standard 20-40 floors you see.
