Same thing with QC.

I'm going to open a new thread that would include all good size Canadian cities and close this one. I bet Vancouver won't get as many votes as before and Calgary will move to the number 2 spot.

Why close this thread? It's great and has a lot of fantastic photos in one place.

Can't we modify the poll options?

No, we can't add the new poll or modify the old one in the 6 years old thread. We need a new thread and new poll because cities skylines have been changed dramatically since 2009 and many members who voted Vancouver last time might want to vote for other cities now and I'm one of them. Btw, closing the thread doesn't mean deleting the thread, you can still peek through the thread from time to time.

Death is simply a natural and necessary part of the universe which paves the way for renewal and rebirth, and we should welcome new thread and give it a beautiful and fulfilling life. But of course it's still sad and we'll never forget the old one.

The cities I want to add on the poll beside the big 5 are Halifax, Hamilton, Saskatoon, Regina and Victoria. I also consider adding St John, Moncton and Saint John to the list, any other suggestion?

Personally I would add Niagara Falls, London, and Windsor before Moncton, Saint John, or St. John's. Nothing against the east coast of course, but those Ontario examples just seem to have larger and more impressive skylines.

Yellowknife? It has a surprisingly large skyline for such a tiny city.

I'd add Ottawa over Hamilton. Mississauga should be on there too. It's a separate city from Toronto.

I didn't even notice Ottawa wasn't there; I automatically assumed it must be. How'd that even happen?

ok I'll add those cities as well. I'm also thinking instead of picking only one city over all the others, it'd be a multi choices poll that you can pick as many cities as you like. The title of the new thread would be like "Your favorite Canadian cities skylines" or something like that.

Do we even need a poll? I'm not sure if a poll of multiple choices would give any insight, as we don't really have a huge number of cities in Canada to start with. There are
four major skylines, and then smaller ones after that.

Poll add more fun to the thread and at least we would know which cities skylines people like more. Without the poll the thread will be just another photos thread imo.

But don't make it a blind poll. Being able to see who votes for which is the most fun part of a poll imo.
