Great post Laceoflight, it was a pleasure to read

If you ever feel like doing the same format for the two first posts for Winnipeg and Montreal, that would be great! Following links all over the place, I usually quit after just a couple

I know Hamilton has a handful, but apart from the Piggott Building I don't know any names...

Great pics, guys. Keep 'em coming.

One thing this thread confirms, though, is that Canadian cities have always been afraid of heights, or having skyscrapers that really stand out from the next tallest ones in their respective cities. That was as true in 1917 as it is in 2017.

No Terminal Towers or Carew towers or things like that.

Every now and then a skyscraper breaks the height barrier by a substantial margin, like Stantec now or the TD centre in 1967 but, in general, the "tallest building in city X" is a 30 or 50 ft higher than the second, third, fourth...tenth tallest.

Montreal's Dominion Square Building looks a bit like Detroit's Cadillac Place:
