I see now what you meant, but the word "best" just struck me as odd. Living in Atlantic Canada (and in a city that has a Q-team), I can say that the Q is quite proud of the fact that they have won three Mem Cups in a row and most Q observers would argue with you as to what league in the CHL is the best.
In hindsight, I probably should have included a
in my original post.
Historically, the further west you go in Canada, the more defensively-responsible it gets (WHL>OHL>QMJHL). That doesn't make those leagues better because offensive creativity goes in the other direction, but when a player scores 80 points in the WHL, it is seen as more impressive than if he scores 80 in the Q.
