I don't know about the maximum glass proposals but I think probably the Toronto section would be a better discussion forum for that than this thread. Rather than posting a lot of photos and further derailing this thread, here's a link for anyone who is interested in new Toronto proposals:

So..... if that has completely exhausted the subject of glass, maybe I can show this nice picture our moderator Marcanadian took of the newly lit up viaduct in Toronto! No glass involved at all, apparently:

Metrotown is in the distance and the foreground is the Brentwood Centre which is under massive development and when its finished, there will be two 50+ storeys tall towers along with eight other new highrises in the area.

Calgary needs a bigger downtown to accommodate the ever growing numbers of towers, its getting too crowded there while Edmonton needs down sizing. J/K

seriously tho, dt highrises in the Cowtown out number the Oil Capital by probably 10 to 1.
