Re: Cities with the world's best quality of living - Mercer Quality of Living Index 2
Canada doing pretty well with 4 cities in the top 25, but the order is ridiculous.
Vancouver is a great city, but way too expensive. Ottawa is super boring and way too governmental. Toronto is nice and all, but lacks a soul. Montreal is the coolest most urban city, but has its issues.
I'd rank them Montreal-Vancouver-Toronto-Ottawa.
Ottawa may be dull as fuck, but it is more affordable/much cleaner / relatively speaking safer/maybe more appealing city for families in comparison to Montreal/Toronto, so I can see why it could rate higher. That said, yes, it is dull as fuck. If that is your main criterion, it wouldn't even make the list. But that's not the sole criterion for rating.
