It'll be interesting to see the province's new tallest building break the glass ceiling... with a glass top-floor Winter Garden no less, on the new Nutrien tower at Riverlanding in Saskatoon next year (where white crane is standing last two pics)...

I used to participate a lot more in national threads, but it started to get a bit too toxic and I stopped caring as much. I read them, but don't often feel the need to contribute.

Follow-up... Is this a sure thing? There have been a couple towers in Regina over the last decade that were supposed to be taller, but when construction started going, they were shortened by a few floors.

It's a for sure thing, Nutrien has already signed the lease.

Drawings posted by the Meewasin Valley Authority a few months back note a roof height of 87.5 m. Previous reports had pegged the tower at around 95 m, so it has been shortened, but it's still enough to capture the new tallest title.

Hahaha, so just enough by a couple metres to still take the crown from Mosaic (Mosaic at one point was supposed to breach the 100m level, but was adjusted to 84.5, 0.5m taller than the delta... iirc).

That's not necessarily an indicator of being a sure thing. Mosaic was much more "in" during the lead-up to tower 3 being built in Regina and Nutrien has courted the bare minimum on how "Saskatchewan-committed" they are since Potash Corp merged with Calgary-based Agrium.

Same here, I use to participate more in some threads but completely lost interest when some posters got immature, or trolled & started name calling when they'd read my posts they couldn't be prepared or open enough to understand, major turn off. Some posters from certain provinces can be very touchy about the truth and need a bit more coddling I guess.

I remember a poster from a couple years ago from Moose Jaw called PrairieGirl that use to post in the Climate thread, but she stopped posting as well when people from other parts of the country started to troll her.

To be honest, a lot of the threads lack credibility because only the same few posters post same thing daily (or few times weekly at least) into the same threads & it gets boring to point of my not caring how clicky certain posters are with each other. I don't have a very high threshold for tolerating phoney chat instead of being honest.

I noticed that too, the Nutrien Tower in Saskatoon is set to be suspiciously yet narrowly just a few meters taller than Mosaic tower in Regina. Maybe Provincial 'Tallest' building has more bragging rights than we think yet 99.9% of the Sask population couldn't care less.

That might also explain Calgary's (Alberta's) tallest buildings handing over the baton so much in the last decade... until of course, Edmonton took the Provincial title by a few meters last year.

Always nice to see some Yellowknife.

Here is a great shot of the growing density in Victoria.

View of Sackville Street in Halifax

The ship with "K181" on it is the HMCS Sackville, a WWII corvette that is a museum ship today (probably named after Sackville NB, which was named after the Viscount of Sackville, British Secretary of State of America in the 1700's; the street might be named after him too although the dates don't quite line up).

Unfortunately the highrises don't make it all the way up the hill. There is a height restriction over the upper 3 blocks or so to preserve views.

What fires are causing it? Northern Manitoba? It's been clear in Regina this year and the rains over the last couple weeks in Sask have lowered fire risk dramatically.

Northern Manitoba and north western Ontario, lots of fires along the MB/ON border.

Can check out the fire situation here: http://firesmoke.ca/forecasts/current/

Very thick smoke in Thunder Bay over the weekend, on Saturday it was dark by 9:30 even though there were no clouds overhead.





I think the day is off by one, because there is nothing for the 7th and the smoke was thicker on the 6th than the 5th or 7th. Most of Saturday, the sun was the same colour and brightness as an incandescent bulb. You could look straight at it, the smoke was so thick.
