If you actually read the posts it wasn't "all about Toronto". It was about the fact that the name doesn't make any sense. You can't make a "tallest in Canada" thread without the tallest in Canada. It's like saying Hamilton is the biggest city in Ontario (not including Toronto and Ottawa). Or saying "the Leafs are the most successful team in the NHL (other than the habs)". It is just incorrect.

If you want a construction thread without the 10 tallest, you post in the highrise construction thread. If you want the 25 tallest proposals without the 25 tallest proposals, you post in the canadian city proposals thread.

And btw the Toronto posters here are no more full of themselves than the Vancouver posters here. Or Calgary posters here. Or Montreal posters here. Actually, many are very self-deprecating (see isaidso).

Except for Caltrane (see what I did there? )
