Lots of land I can say.

Hamilton will also probably sprawl up the mountain to double the area if the Greenbelt is anything to go by.

You can see a tiny part of the northern tip of regina in this picture. It moreso features the Qu'Appelle Valley that runs all across Saskatchewan though:

As a supplement, a photo I posted in a different thread previously, not sure from how far up this is:

^Funny how un-natural the island looks. As if it was purpose-made for a city, or as if it were terraformed in a sim city game.

The entire Avalon Peninsula, indeed the whole island, has a thin layer of snow:

It's almost unrecognizable from that perspective. At least, at first.

The undeveloped areas (agr. or natural land reserves and parks) show up much more than they would in summer. They are the large dark holes, the largest is in Delta.

That would be Burns Bog.

^ Now that's pretty cool. You can even see Caledonia south of Hamilton (the dark line splitting the town is Grand River), which will be added to Hamilton's CMA in the next round.

K/W seems so sprawly compared to Hamilton.

Well just to put it in perspective, the city of Hamilton is 520 000, and the combined municipalities of Kitchener, Waterloo, and Cambridge are 447 000, so not that different. There's bound to be less density, as the cities are growing between each other, while Hamilton is an old city and bound in with the escarpment.

EDIT: Upon further investigation, the Kitchener urban area (441 000), which includes Cambridge and Waterloo, is over twice the density of the Hamilton urban area. I don't know how this could be? But that's what statscan says.

Probably because there are no really visible landforms like a coastline or rivers to give scale. All there is is snow covered prairie, and some valleys to the west/north.
