Yes and by the time you get to the town of Hope (The Lower Mainland region start from there), mountains are on both sides of Highway #1.

I used to live in that area. Beautiful view, but when it's snowing, driving there is a nightmare. You just slide down the hill

Edmonton, Mississauga, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Hamilton, Niagara Falls, North York, Burnaby. It's going to be a dogfight for 5th over the next 10 years.

My Top 15

01. Toronto
02. Calgary
03. Montreal
04. Vancouver
05. Edmonton
06. Winnipeg
07. Hamilton
08. Ottawa
09. Halifax
10. Victoria
11. London
12. Mississauga
13. North York
14. Burnaby
15. Niagara Falls


Mississauga, North York, and Burnaby have height, but need to fill in more, need some architectural diversity, and some office. All 3 will skyrocket up to my rank if they can plug those 'holes'.

although I love this british style city, there is hardly any skyline in Victoria. and Halifax just don't have the height.
