Top 10 Best, Top 10 Worst Liveable Cities

From The Economist: With low crime, little threat from instability or terrorism and a highly developed transport and communications infrastructure, Canada and Australia are home to the most liveable destinations in the world. Four of the ten most liveable cities surveyed by the Economist Intelligence Unit are in Australia, and two of the top five are Canadian. Vancouver is the most attractive destination, with a liveability index of just 1.3% (see table above, click to enlarge).

I'd like to see where the US Cities do fall on the list.

Detroit may be #132?

I don't see how they can argue that Canada has no terrorism.

There has been recent Islamic terrorist activity near Toronto...

And long term on-and-off Quebecois terrorist activity in Canada, most recently this threat:

That said, Toronto is a great city!

Vegas is number one, which is why 36 million people visit this town every year. The reason it didn't make the survey is simple. What happens here, stays here. Comprende?

It's funny how the only Commonwealth countries those cities come from are Australia and Canada. Exaggerate much?

Also, no mention of England or her bitches Ireland, Scotland, Wales ect. So it's really got nothing to do with "Anglo Commonwealth settlements". Australia and Canada just happen to be liveable countries due to their politics and notice how Toronto, Melbourne and Sydney are listed? All three cities have a high population of immigrants.
