Toronto: Fifth Most Livable

An Economist magazine survey has named Vancouver the best place to live. Again. Congratulations to our sister city and all but I know I’m not the only Torontonian who would love to see those Vancouverites dethroned.

A few things to note: Canada has two cities on the list while my second favourite country has four. Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, and Sydney are doing Australia proud taking the number 2, 4, 6 and 7 spots, respectively. No U.S. is on the list.

Being fifth is pretty damn good, especially after all the bad news that’s been coming out of our city, from shootings, to stabbings, to daylight robberies and inept politicians who can’t make the city work. Hell, they can’t even work together.

Just imagine what kind of city, how great a city Toronto can be if our leaders learned to work and compromise and, you know, actually lead instead of waiting for the province or the feds to bail them out. Just a thought, a pipe dream.
