Comparing Vancouver and Calgary is a joke. Walk in downtown Vancouver, at any time of the day or week, and you'll see a million people and it seems like there are tall buildings for a thousand miles. Walk in downtown Calgary and half the time it's a ghost town in comparison. Plus it's got nowhere near the density of Vancouver. Night and day. And downtown Vancouver is just nicer, period. It has the ocean, beaches, much more pleasant weather throughout the year, Stanley Park, more density, FARRR more people that reside downtown and it's a million times cleaner. No comparison.

I'm in the Vancouver camp, too. I just find the downtown and skyline to be much denser and more urban.

It was Victoria Day here last Monday, which is sometimes called "Fireworks Day" here.

rating cities I would go to Vancouver. Rating skylines Calgary is my pick. Vancouver's architecture is lacking outside its core.

Montreal

same here but that comment about people think Vancouver's skyline is taller than Montreal just totally blew me away.

Nice density shot! The Central Business District is not shown here as the shot was taken to the east and looking north over the old St James Church and St Lawrence Hall:

Aww inspiring, yet quite drab looking at the same time. The old buildings are all beige and forgettable. The new buildings are all shoddy-to-average blue glass and forgettable. Somebody needs to inform Toronto that variety is the spice of life. It's like the city's MO is to look as dull as humanly possible. The "Vancouverization" of Toronto!!!
