how many beautiful places there are. We need to start traveling urgently, ahah. I want to see everything with my own eyes. By the way, someone need some help with mathematics. I can help you with this. Found an excellent site https://paperleaf.ca/math/ where quickly and correctly do the math!

Ahh the time honoured tradition of chucking your beer cans down from the 500s at a Jays game.

I thought that only happened on opening day though?

Here are a few that all happen to be of Hollis Street in Halifax (take by different photographers):

The neighbourhoods of St-Jean-Baptiste (foreground) and St-Roch (close background), in the city of Québec.

It was nice to see the ambiances of Halifax and New Westminster. New West looks amazing and I'll sure visit when in BC.

That second Rimouski picture though... As much as I love the city, I think that it has a terribly unaccessible and noisy seafront. And the urban planning (St-Germain St. in downtown, or along Hwy 132) doesn't live up to its potential. Great news that they are tearing down what remains of the old waterfront shopping centre for this Sid Lee Architecture project though ! It's the beginning of something.

To clarify, the post at the top of this page is photos of Calgary, not New Westminster ("The New West" is a figure of speech in this case)

Oh, lmfao! I don't know how anyone could confuse the downtown core of Calgary for New West. I've lived in both, for years each, and the two are incomprehensibly different I can see how the mistake was made though, and I appreciate the compliments about my photos and city!

"The Heart of the New West" used to be Calgary's slogan, for like decades.

The question is, what's the heart of New West? The bathhouse or the strip club?

Innocently, I'd say the Heritage Grill on Columbia

OMG ! Thank you @Hali87 for correcting me and for the gentle explanation. Pardonnez-moi. I should have seen the clues though ; on the 1st and 3rd pictures, we clearly see the Bow and/or Telus Sky. Sorry guys My mistake. It's the "heart of the new West" thing that mixed me up.

And sorry dude, but not everyone in the entire world could be able to make the difference. I've been in Calgary once, and have never been to New Westminster. Looking at Street View, the vernacular commercial architecture in both these cities don't seem much different (typical commercial strips from the 19th or beginning of 20th centuries...), they both seem pretty English Canadian to me... And New Westminster has quite a lot of highrises too for a city its size. I admit that I should have noticed The Bow, but I don't think that laughing at me was necessary. Réaction de mononcle chaud dans un party de Noël. You've lived in both. Not everyone has.

*Some people here have admitted that they wouldn't recognize the Château Frontenac, and for a long time it was the world's most photographed hotel. Would you laugh at them too ?

I feel like the waterfront was neglected for too long but people are now starting to wake up to its potential. It's now a work in progress, the next years should be interesting!

I've only ever passed through New Westminster but I agree that it looks passibly like Calgary (the scale of buildings and the terrain are different, and there are some differences between Calgary/Vancouver architecture, but they are subtle). The 2nd and 4th photos look a bit like my mental image of New Westmin.
