Same here, I don't think it was offensive. It was actually funny because not entirely untrue.

Only that this guy doesn't own a mirror..Throw a similar tongue in cheek barb about Calgary, and he comes out swinging. At least he used to as well as antagonize a lot. Forumers from Montreal would know that from all the cheap shots he used to throw around , followed by his victim playing when they hit back..Maybe he lightened up with a little bit of age, and I'm being unfair.Who knows..Carry on (:

It's interesting how you laughably said "you were almost proud of me for turning a new leaf" or whatever bilge you spewed, yet you didn't even read the tongue-in-cheek barb I poked at Calgary, and then continued in this comment to barf all over this thread.

Clearly you're just trying to stir up bullshit, and just making an ass of yourself like you did every time you used to try and torment me when I was weak years and years ago. Time to grow up, sweetie.

Since they're both brutalist and concrete, I suppose it's some type of ersatz dick measuring contest between the two of them.

Come to think of it, the BellAliant Tower does remind me a bit of Orthanc.

Hamilton: We're still the Ambitious City. We're just not sure what our ambitions are.

Burlington: More urban every day. Except we don't want the buildings. And bike lanes. And transit. And don't dare mess with our parking. But otherwise, we're more urban every day.
