toronto because of the size and the amount of things there are to do downtown. also the complexity of it, the size of the buildings. and also hustle and bustle. i can onlly compare to montreal cuz i haven't been out west but toronto's downtown is better than montreals.
Toronto and Montreal have by far the largest, most used mixed-use downtowns in the country. Vancouver may be next, although I think I prefer Quebec City's; Halifax looks quite healthy but I've never been, so I cannot judge it.
Calgary??????! Maybe it has rapidly changed since I've last been there...
I've only really been to three downtowns in Canada (Halifax, Montreal, Toronto), so I can't really make a choice what with the Alberta cities.
Downtown Halifax may not have a whole lot of larger buildings thanks to the Citadel viewplanes, but I think it's still one of my favourite downtowns because it's so lively and not just a place where people go to work.
