Towers[edit]

Could User:A.Roz please explain why towers are not included on this page? I think I know why, but I don't know the details. 117Avenue (talk) 01:16, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Should Victoria Tower (Canada) not also be included? How do we know that there aren't other buildings missing from the Tallest building history section? To me the entire section seems like original research, which should be avoided. 117Avenue (talk) 06:13, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Limit[edit]

I don't think that this list needs to be limited to a certain number of entries. 51 puts the cutoff at 535 feet, an arbitrary number. This is an online encyclopedia, a page can be made larger as long as the entries are notable. 500 feet is a good round number to cut the list off at. Articles exist for buildings beyond that, the list could even be expanded. 117Avenue (talk) 07:22, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

I agree. Njaohnt (talk) 01:21, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

History of tallest buildings...[edit]

Why were several subjects in the history of tallest buildings section removed? Chadillaccc (talk) 06:56, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Basically User:117Avenue didn't like the list and decided to delete the buildings he didn't approve of. I guess he owns the article. UrbanNerd (talk) 21:50, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
I ended the history section at 140m, and the city section at 80m, because there was no way to determine if the ones below that were correct or not. See Towers and Peace Tower above. I also removed unreferenced entries in the province list, and completion dates for buildings under construction, as this is a WP:CRYSTAL violation. 117Avenue (talk) 04:09, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

The history section doesn't require a height limit. As long as it is a high-rise over 35 meters it is relevant to this page; a compilation of lists about skyscrapers/high-rises in Canada. Chadillaccc (talk) 23:22, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't mean to say there is a height limit, but that at some point it gets difficult to verify the entires. 117Avenue (talk) 02:10, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Units[edit]

Most of the sources use metres. Should metres be presented first? This being metric Canada. 117Avenue (talk) 02:25, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:List of tallest bridges in the world which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 13:16, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Toronto Old City Hall[edit]

According to this article Old City Hall was the tallest building in Canada from 1899 until 1917. Dalek Monty (talk) 19:41, 28 April 2018 (UTC)
