The river does look ugly. I've always wondered why it was brown myself. I believe Moncton has the thing right?
Winnipeg seems quite a bit more centralised. For Hamilton the lower city has a pretty steady spread of highrises and Burlington has a tone. Also Winnipeg does have more office towers while Hamilton's about factories and hospitals.

Yeah, the Hamilton area has historically been a bit polycentric while the Winnipeg area has only ever really had one major urban node.

Not my photo, but it appears it was taken from here:

Here's a photo of mine from a similar location but in winter...

Here's an older Vancouver skyline pic of mine that I unearthed from my archives. It predates the Trump Tower and probably a few others.

^ Huh, Victoria almost looks like Kingston in a way. Similar sort of stone architecture, although definitely a different type of stone.
