Toronto named second best city worldwide

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/...rticle2020962/

Quote:
Trumped by New York City, Toronto stood out among the world's "metro powerhouses" in the areas of finance, tourism, livability and innovation - and was the only Canadian city to make the cut.

The city ranked #1 in terms of quality of living, clean air, sports and leisure, as well as skyscraper construction - if you count that as a positive.
the firm that published the study: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PricewaterhouseCoopers (British, not Canadian)

Every one of these studies are intended for completely different purposes, so its not so surprising that the results differ.

Cool, very nice for Canada to have Toronto rank higher against some very beautiful cities in the world.

I guess we take it for granted when we are here everyday.

We all know if they took sports seriously we'd be far lower on the list.

Am I missing something or are there only 26 total cities taken into account spread worldwide?

That seems a bit more reasonable and much less selective

WTH are they basing this on?

Stupid survey, some people like the downtown, hustle and bustle and others simply like to live somewhere like Red Deer.

Nobody should ever like to live in Red Deer IMO.

Love seeing the anti Toronto bias out here in the west. Lots of them hasn't even been to Toronto, yet the people are jackasses and the city is dirt.

Surprised quite how high Toronto's rated though.

Considering their ranking uses crime rate, your ability to walk to work, house pricing, and unemployment, every large, high population city is going to be at a disadvantage. Then they take sports, leisure, entertainment, tourism, arts/museums, music scene, historic landmarks, food & drink, etc, and roll them all up into one category and call it 'culture.' Which is of course weighed as heavily as your ability to walk or bike to work

That's a fine ranking system, Moneysense.

Apples and Oranges really.

There are only 3 places in Canada that could arguably be called 'cities' from the global point of view: Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal.

Everything else is just a town.

Canada is small population wise though so our terminology is more generous
