Toronto Sky Line

The CN Tower inspires a sense of pride and inspiration for Canadians


Although the CN Tower inspires a sense of pride and inspiration for Canadians and a sense of awe for foreign tourists, its origins are rooted in practicality. The 1960s ushered in an unprecedented construction boom in Toronto transforming a skyline characterized by relatively low buildings into one dotted with skyscrapers. These buildings caused serious communications problems for existing transmission towers, which were simply not high enough to broadcast over the new buildings. Signals bounced off the buildings creating poor television and radio reception for residents. The CN Tower swiftly solved the communications problems with room to spare and as a result, people living in the

Toronto area now enjoy some of the clearest reception in North America.
