Sudbury - Canada

The third of my northern Ontario skylines. Sudbury, Ontario. Home to 85,000 in the immediate city and 155,000 in the metro area and located midway between North Bay and Sault Ste. Marie on Lake Ramsey, an inner Ontario lake, Sudbury is home to Laurentian University, Cambrian College, Science North (one of Canada's famous science centers), the BIG NICKEL, a huge hub for railroads and transportation, the OHL's Sudbury Wolves, and is known as the nickel city as a lot of nickel is made here. It is also the birthplace of Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek and Joe Bowen, a legendary commentator for the Toronto Maple Leafs, who commentates like he is going to have a freakin HEART ATTACK.

Probably the best skyline in all of Northern Ontario, but still nothing too big or special about it, the scenery adds to it as well. Too bad it isn't on a lake like Sault Ste. Marie and Thunder Bay.

Sudbury! Ha!

Jaybird, you're the best for posting this stuff... good old suds... I was born in Sudbury.

You missed the best part about Sudburys skyline... the superstack!!

The Superstack is the tallest smokestack in the world. Built in 1972, it is 1250' tall (comapare that to the CN Tower at 1815'). Thats a big f*cking smokestack baby!

good old suds.... I give it a 0/10.

4/10 I can't believe that the tallest smokestack in the world wasn't built by the old Soviet Union under one of their "Five Year Plans." But I guess Sudbury came up lucky and got all 1250' of smoke belching beauty!
Um . . . I can't find the skyline. :dunno: I give it less than 3, not sorry.
Whats with all of the towns with no skylines being entered in "rate our skyline"?
^ it's only a bit of test to see how the Northern Ontario cities fare out...
there isn't much of a skyline, 5/10
Maybe I should have given it less than a 7/10. But I rate these cities higher, because they are in Ontario, and I am showing a little love for my province. Maybe it should have been a 5/10... one problem is there is no real GOOD shot of downtown Sudbury to make it look like it has a skyline, and most of its buildings are spread out. I know it's ridiculous, but I consider Sudbury to have a few buildings that have 10+ stories in them, plus with the Watertower and Smokestack (lol) there. But I believe these Northern Ontario cities do have a bit of a "skyline" and nobody said I couldn't post about these, including Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, and Sudbury. Some of you guys might not see them, but I do.
Really tiny skyline :( 4,5/10 - because of that tall chimney ;)
LOL, omg, those are the worst pics of sudz ever, theres more of a skyline then that, if you judge sudbury on that you might as well look at a picture of the ground.
