    I used to live across the Lake from Toronto and I must say that the skyline is quite attractive – of course the view hinges on a smog-free day (much like the photo you applied to your post). Yay T.O.

    True enough Brett, the smog definitely affects the skyline.

    I grew up near St. Catharines, so I guess I used to live across the lake from Toronto too. I always wished there was a bridge that went from St. Catharines to Toronto…

    PS: My apologies for not including Edmonton in the cities I noted. It ranked #97 in the list ;)

    Well this is a coincidence. I actually grew up in St. Catharines before I moved out west in 2003. Just out of curiosity, what town/city did you grow up in (I noticed you said “near” St. Catharines)?

    That is a coincidence. I grew up in the middle of the Niagara Region. I went to elementary school in Welland, but high school in Fonthill. The town I lived in was called “Port Robinson”. It was officially part of Thorold, but it’s closer to Fonthill/Welland
