Two from Toronto

Canada - CN Tower and the Rogers Centre, Toronto

Notes: The aerial view of Toronto features the Rogers Centre and the CN Tower.  The Rogers Centre is the home of Major League Baseball's Toronto Blue Jays, as well as the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.  I visited this stadium in around 1995, back when it was still called the SkyDome.  Next door is the CN Tower, the tallest free-standing tower in the Western Hemisphere and the 6th tallest in the world.



Canada - The Legislative Building, Toronto

Notes: This building may look like a castle, but it is actually the Ontario Legislative Building.  Completed in 1893, it houses the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, the viceregal suite of the Lieutenant Governor, and the officers of the members of the provincial parliament.  The building is surrounded by Queen's Park, which was opened in 1960 to honor Queen Victoria.
