People here in Winnipeg are extremely aware of London's existence. I know a lot of people who have been there. They may not know the exact population, but I am confident that most, who have at least any kind of geographical knowledge would let you know that its population is larger than those that you listed.

London is a very quiet city that isn't on the top of people's minds, but everyone knows about it because everyone knows someone from there, or has been there for some reason at some point.

That makes Hamilton look like Florianópolis Brazil or something.

I didnt know much about London until SSP. I thought maybe it was 250,000. This inspired me to look at it on Google Satellite. For some reason I thought it was part of a group of cities, now I see it is a uni-city. London really doesn't get much attention at all.

I'm not sure in what context you're thinking when you envision London's identity as seen from the rest of the nation. I frequently hear of London because I have an abundant amount of friends who have or who are attending Western (and these are friends from the Maritimes; not local Ontarians).

As far as the national media is concerned, out of the cities on your list I would say that Halifax seems to get a disproportionate amount of attention. I would surmise the reasons for this being Halifax's age (historical anniversaries often get noted on the national news) and (more obviously) its size relative to the other municipalities in its region. Also, certain regions of Halifax have crime problems.

London, I can imagine, gets drowned out by much of the news that's produced in Toronto.

You do realize that multiple pictures/multiple topics can be discussed in one post, right?

Thanks for the advice. I like to separate by city, and sometimes by pic size or rotation.

I wish Canadian cities looked more like Brazillian and other (high HDI) Latin American cities.

Eeewwwwwww! I find little appealing about Brazilian cities. Ugly residential blocks, low quality office buildings, crappy infrastructure, etc.

Then it's got a few things in common with Hamilton after all

Give us a tour already!

Yep, according to Stats Can, the London Census Metropolitan Area is half a million strong. And just that: 500.0 (thousand)

We are a bit of the Rodney Dangerfield of Canada.

Hey, the infrastructure can be fixed without changing the aesthetics, so that bit's irrelevant. As for the residential blocks, that's your opinion. I personnally like those buildings.
Campinas Brazil: 2.5 million

source:http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1181757
Denver USA: 2.6 million

source: http://www.trinityhistory.org/AmH/u7maps.htm

I'd say Campinas wins big time.
