An article in the Economist ranking cities by a “liveability index”: Where the grass is greener.
Canada has the most liveable city (Vancouver) and 2 of the top 5 (Toronto being the other).
I did always find it humorous, when living in the US, that most Americans respond to these kinds of reports with “I don’t believe those reports because those countries have much higher taxes and less economic growth.” Americans have been led to believe lower taxes (therefore I would assume more in-pocket money) gives happiness. But, is it worth paying a bit more in tax (which is actually somewhat equalized by not having to pay for health care), to live in a clean, low-crime, terrorism-free city?
Obviously for me the answer was yes, since I moved back.
