CN Towers in London, Ontario; Edmonton, and Saskatoon.

The CN Tower in London, Ontario was scheduled to be demolished on February 4 2001.
YouTube has a video (with audio) of the implosion--- in the background, fools can be heard cheering and laughing as the building bites the dust. The video is called "CN Building Implosion, London ON".
In May of 2008, all CN Rail employees vacated the landmark CN Tower in Edmonton, Alberta. A YouTube video documents the destruction of a train station next to the tower, Google "Demolition of CN Station YouTube."
The Edmonton CN Tower, owned by Canadians, then sold to Tawa International Inc. 

During the 1970's, the CN Tower in Saskatoon was the tallest building in the city.

  1. I remember when the International Style CN Tower and train station came down. I always thought of the building as a Mies van der Rohe knock-off. I was sorry to see the matte black building demolished. If only it could have lasted a few more decades it would have earned the patina of heritage and people would have fought to save it rather than laugh at it destruction.
