As an impartial viewer, I'd personally say;
1. Toronto,
2. Calgary
3. Vancouver
4. Montreal

I don't particularly like the style of buildings in Vancouver, resembles an Asian skyline and the buildings look a bit cheap. That being said its night time shot is fantastic.

What I would say is the skylines in the smaller cities are bloody impressive given the size. We have maybe one or two in the whole of the UK that could compete with just the smaller ones :/

Toronto
Montreal
Vancouver tied with Calgary
Edmonton
Winnipeg

For those who were saying Vancouver is better than Montreal because Montreal lacks Vancouver's height. You are very wrong. Vancouver is not as tall.


Montreal has 10 buildings over 150 m (Montreal s tallest building at 205 meters )


Vancouver has only 3 buildings over 150 m ( Vancouver's tallest building is 201 Meters)

Never heard people say Vancouver skyline is taller than Montreal but many do say Vancouver is more dense than Montreal and I agree.

I'd tend to agree; it is a far denser skyline than Montreal. I'm hard pressed to say whether I rank Vancouver or Montreal as number 2; Calgary is firmly in fourth spot in my books. Then I suppose Edmonton after that.

Toronto has a number of impressive suburban skylines. This one is North York (a northern suburb) and looks quite urban in this shot. Note to those who quickly skim through these threads this is
NOT downtown Toronto
