Best vantage points in Toronto and Montreal?

I'll be in Toronto for about a week in December of 2017 and in Montreal in April of 2018. Any suggestions on the best vantage points in those cities?

What kind of vantage points are you looking for? Everything that has a vantage point in Toronto usually costs you as nothing is free. Your best bet is CN Tower on a non-cloudy day for day time, you can also try Canoe restaurant and Panorama Bar/Resto at Yonge & Bloor has a great view south of the city.

How about to see the skyline of Toronto?

Polson Pier is a 15-20 min walk from the Distillery station, but it is a less crowded photog. place than Centre Island.

I will rephrase my comment above. Since it seems like rfd' s finest are in this thread.

If you want to best vantage point of the skyline. Pay the money to go to center island. The Polson pier gives you a weird side view. You don't have to take my word for it. Google it, and you can see for yourself.

Only way to get to Centre Island? If so, sounds a bit like Liberty Island in NYC.
Yes, since there's no bridge to the island. Unless you want to swim.

Definitely not like Granville island in Vancouver, where you can drive to.

Montreal, QC
the only free vintage point in Montréal is Mount Royal itself otherwise you are looking at paying around $25 to access the best points. Ville-Marie would be the best
