Has anyone ever seen the Mercer report for most liveable cities in the world? 39 Criteria from political, social, economic, environmental city services ect. to make up a liveablity score marked against NYC as the benchmark.

And it looks like Canadian cities are the best in north america, by and large, with pretty much all our major cities scoring in the top 25. Vancouver is #3 and the best city in the world not in switzerland. San Francisco (28th) is the best in the continental united states, but a hair behind Honolulu (27th) as the most liveable american city.

Here's the top 50:

I also read that the last place stop (not shown), is rather unsurprisingly - Baghdad.
