Not my city, but I found these pics of Yellowknife quite interesting.

The Federal Building was the First LEED building North of 60. Cold's firm was the Arch. I calibrated all the Heating and Ventilation systems back then. The blue windows are actually PV panels.

The last photo of the grey buildings are the CDN forces Northern Operations centre and the darker one is the RCMP division head quarters.

Other than that condo in old town I have worked on everyone of those buildings.

Good ol' Newfoundland. Officially English is by far the largest ethnicity and it's supposedly less Irish than Ontario, but half of you are Catholic and have super Irish sound names.

Yeah - Paddy Daly always points that out to Irish callers to Open Line when they call in to go on about how much they feel at home here. They're usually surprised, crack a joke about not holding it against us.

Is that building any good to live in? It seems like it must have a great view.

Ha. If there were hordes of people around, that could pass for Covent Garden.

No fire in the sky now though, now that the refinery's ramped down production.

There's another "full-size" Smoke's a few blocks away at "pizza corner", the bar district's unofficial food court. And I'm not 100% sure but I think there's one somewhere in Dartmouth now as well.
