List of tallest buildings in Windsor, Ontario facts for kids
None of Windsor's tallest buildings are among the tallest in Canada, but are generally taller than the tallest buildings in the Windsor's nearby neighbours, St. Catherines and Kitchener, though London's tallest building is the tallest in the southwest. This may partly be explained by the fact that Windsor is directly across the border from Detroit, Michigan, a metropolitan area of over 4 million people. The gambling and drinking laws in Canada are more lax than in the USA so many young Americans cross over the Ambassador bridge for some fun.
