I agree, Toronto dominates for now but Calgary and other smaller cities are catching up. Montreal has good bones.... add a few new towers and one supertall and it could easily overtake Toronto.

In terms of height and scale Toronto is just on another level. Aesthetically, I prefer Montreal even though the skyline isn't anywhere as impressive. It has great architectural layering. I never can quite decide what I think of Vancouver. In some photos it's spectacular, in others it bores me to death. The 2 dark horses are Calgary and Edmonton. I think they're both going to come on like gangbusters.

And then there's Niagara Falls? It has no layering to speak of and quite shoddy looking towers at that. Regardless, I've always liked it. Not sure why.

Cow Town always looks so pretty in the fall. Those layers of green to yellow, the foothills, and the tree canopy with the skyline as a back drop are hard to top.

Is there a view of the city where you can see the Rockies as the backdrop of the skyline?

Thank you isaidso! Amazing views. I have a weakness for mountain backdrops and skylines. Calgary might have just gotten bumped up to second best in Canada on my list!

I had it in 4th as recently as 2 years ago, but have it in 2nd now as well. I saw proper mountains for the first time last summer when I visited southern Alberta and have to say that photos don't do them justice. I just stared and stared and stared. It was a very humbling experience.
