Toronto's H2O park has been a great success. It's interesting seeing it in the winter though, with the snow hanging on those yellow umbrellas:

nice shot, you can easily spot the future skyscraper following the cranes.

How will Calgary look like in 2012 I wonder now!

Montreal is more beautiful than Toronto, but this has the best skyline. I choose Toronto.

Toronto looks best overall. It has some great height and I like how it tapers. Reminds me of LA in that it is small but respectable.

Vancouver has hands down the best location. Beautiful scenery, I loved it when I was there but yes monotonous skyline.

Montreal is really respectable and being from San Diego I feel the pain from height limitations.

Calgary is seriously lacking in scenery which I give some weight to in skylines. Love the parliament building at Ottowa though.

Canada sure is pretty. Loved what I've experienced of it for the most part.

I don't know why people, but I appear to be fascinated by skyscrapers as the black/dark tall one right in up in front in this picture .... , I don't know, I find them so beautiful.

Like the AON in Los Angeles...

Somehow, and I might be wrong, but I find that a tower as like, adds some kind of an elegance, majestically kind of a glamour to any skyline. but why is that?

I went there in the summer, really awfull! Sand was terribly coarse and just the sterile urbanity of it was totaly juxtaposed to the fact it was trying to emulate something as natural as a beach (was like a sand box for adults).
