I can feel your pain but these guys have a valid point. The only city in the country with any chance for a supertall is Toronto, period, end of sentence.
The closest we'll get to a supertall in Atlantic Canada for the next two centuries will be the Aliant communications tower in Moncton at 110 metres, and it's nothing more than a concrete phallus with a few microwave dishes, radio antennae and cellphone transmitters at the top.
The Aliant tower is the equivalent of a 35 storey building but it really destroys the Moncton skyline because it de-emphasizes anything else that is built in the city. A supertall in almost any Canadian city would have the same effect as the Aliant tower in Moncton.
Let Toronto have the supertalls. I'd rather have a denser downtown with more human scaled building anyway.
