Nope, I think Kitchener has Peterborough and maybe even Yellowknife beaten.
Well Yellowknife does have a population under 20 000, and Kitchener is nearly double Peterborough. For a 500 000 CMA is is pretty lame. They must have one of the, if not the lowest tower per capita ratio of any greater area over 100 000 in Canada. And don't take this as a negative spin on the whole area, just in the aspect of urban density.

Honestly...my take as to why Kitcheners skyline is so damn dull is cause K-W doesn't know where to focus it's development so they split it between both Kitch. or Waterloo...

Aastra, Victoria's metro population of ~350,000 would have qualified it for this thread anyway.

I don't think Burnaby should qualify though since it is part of greater Vancouver.

Of all the cities i've been to under 500,000 people, i'd say this city has the most impressive skyline in Canada:


















Still not sure?






Welcome to Regina.

Population?

Around 200,000.


P.S.-great topic sparky!
