Canada ranked #1 country in the world for Quality of Life



As we told you earlier, Canada has been named the #2 best country in the world.

Well, we’ve also been named as the #1 country in the world in 2018 for Quality of Life for a third year in a row.


The study, conducted by U.S. News in partnership with Y&R’s BAV and Wharton, broke down 80 countries’ overall rankings based “on 75 different metrics.”

Each of those metrics was then placed into one of nine subcategories that included:

  • Affordability
  • Stable job market
  • Economic stability
  • Family friendliness
  • Income equality
  • Political stability
  • Education systems
  • Public health systems

Canada beat out Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Australia, who all finished in the Quality of Life top 5.

According to the study, Canada placed number one for its political stability, strong job market, safe environment, and its good education system.

Here are the 25 best countries for Quality of Life in 2018

Yeah, they may still have some savings he can give away to international fraudster bankers who put jews on the trains ( and who brags about that being the best time of his life).

Interest rates go up as the dollar declines and Canada is screwed,
Then you have rising oil prices and global cooling...

lol
Screwed? Canada has been RAPED...just lie back and enjoy it eh?

A record-breaking cold that’s threatening to spur heating-fuel shortages from the East Coast to Texas has driven up natural gas demand to unprecedented levels and put crops across the U.S. wheat belt at risk.

“It is very cold and in a lot of places it is record cold,” said Bob Oravec, a senior branch forecaster at the Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland

The U.S. consumed 143 billion cubic feet of gas on New Year’s Day, data from PointLogic Energy show. Prices for the heating fuel rose to a one-month high of US$3.097 per million British thermal units on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Plunging temperatures across the wheat belt on Monday damaged crops that didn’t have a protective layer of snow, according to World Weather Inc., sending futures contracts higher. Since the cold snap arrived, New York City has seen some of the highest electricity prices in two years.

We are far NORTH of TEXAS

The record personal debt, rising interest rates, and of course oil costs, combined with the rape called carbon taxes and PROVEN GLOBAL COOLING, and it will be all over.

Sadly you[we] have borrowed with gov acting as our agent and are paying $bils in interest about $30bil right now and with jr.s' belief you can spend your way to prosperity that number will soon reach orbit. Ditto for a rate increase, interest payments too will attain orbit.

Another day- another thought with which to expose LIE-beral moral rot:

Some clever person posted this observation: “It is my thought that civil service union Hogs are swarming social media sites to stifle any voice that dissents from their own. Are there others who would agree with my belief that they are heavy handed and authoritarian and therefore a threat to democracy”?

In related news- should we ask just what all those LIE-beral media relations staffes spend their day doing? Maybe things like spreading Fake News on behalf of their political employer? And- would we have less Fake News if politicians had to write their own crap instead of hiding behind a smoke screen of “I was mis-quoted”?

I must insist that this person is quite right in assuming civil service Hogs are BENDING election law in a most disgraceful fashion! One has only to imagine the screams of outrage that would come from the LIE-beral/Hog headquarters if corporate CEO`s told their employees that their pay and job security would be in jeopardy unless Conservatives were elected! Can you picture the outrage if CEO`s told their employees they would not get raises in pay if LIE-berals were elected!

And yet that is EXACTLY what Hog union leaders have told their followers! All govt employees KNOW that their future will be much brighter if LIE-berals are elected! And LIE-berals make this assertion more true with every new contract they sign with Hogs! It is election bribery on a HUGE scale!

LIE-berals have made hundreds of billions of dollars in pension promises to Hogs. For instance, Ontari-owe LIE-beralsc have promised fifty five billion dollars in pension promises to OSSTF/Ontari-owe high school teachers who already have the single largest pension fund in all of North America! And there are EIGHTEEN MORE provincial civil service ujions right behind OSSTF- each with their own set of COSTLY IOU`s! Civil servants receive pension opportunities on a scale that is not even legal for private sector workers!

Sadly there are many hundreds of billions of dollars in LIE-beral IOU`s promised by the FOUR levels of govt- federal, provincial, municipal and the arms length crown corporations such as ORNGE, E-health and the colleges, universities and hospitals! All those LIE-beral promises in exchange for Hog votes is breaking our economy! WE are so grossly in debt that if LIE-berals try to pay even a modest portion of the promises they made in a desperate effort to cling to power, it will throw us into a depression so vast it will make the Dirty Thirties look like a minor inconvenience! The taxes needed to pay for even a portion of LIE-beral promises will cripple vast swaths of our economy and ensure that health care, unemployment ins, welfare and old age pensions for ordinary people disappear like snow in July!

How bad could it all get if LIE-berals ever try to pay most iof their promises? John Steinbeck gave is a window into that sort of world in his Grapes of Wrath! But next time it wont just be “Okies” suffering! The Great Depression and the 2008 Mortgage Meltdown were both the result of massive debt and sloppy banking- just the sort of mess the world has RETURNED TO!

New Delhi is world's most polluted capital, Beijing eighth

Quote:

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - New Delhi was the world's most polluted capital city in 2018, two groups monitoring air pollution said on Tuesday in a study of the amount of fine particulate matter known as PM2.5 in 61 capital cities around the world.
The Indian capital, home to more than 20 million people, was followed by the Bangladesh capital of Dhaka and Kabul, capital of Afghanistan, according to the study by IQ AirVisual, a Swiss-based group that gathers air-quality data globally, and Greenpeace.
New Delhi's toxic air is caused by vehicle and industrial emissions, dust from building sites, smoke from the burning of rubbish and crop residue in nearby fields.
The city's average annual concentration of PM2.5 in a cubic metre of air was 113.5 in 2018, the groups said in their report, more than double the level of Beijing, which averaged 50.9 during the year, making it the eighth most polluted in the world.
PM2.5, or particles of 2.5 micrometers or less in diameter, is so dangerous because it lodges deep in the lungs.
The World Health Organization sets a daily mean air quality guideline of 25 micrograms of PM2.5 per cubic metre of air.
China struggled for years to enforce environment rules and crack down on polluting industries, but it has benefited in recent years from vastly improved legislation and greater political will to combat poor air quality.
"In mainland China, in particular, this has led to significant improvements in year-on-year reductions in PM2.5 levels," the groups said in their joint study.
India is home to 15 of the 20 most polluted cities in the world, they said.
"The question which remains to be answered is whether there is enough political will to aggressively fight the health emergency India faces today and move away from polluting fuels and practices," said Pujarini Sen, spokeswoman for Greenpeace India.

It is the usual LIE-beral BULLSH+T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!


If you are a civil service union Hog then life is FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If you are a millennial who doesnt find smacking the cockroaches you share your place with - even though they do not contribute to the rent - to be an amusing pastime.......................................


or if you are one of the millions of Cdns struggling with McJobs frozen wages and higher taxes......................then life is NOT SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Here is a simple solution to some of the troubles plaguing Toronto Community Housing. With some comments of my own in brackets):

Move seniors out of TCHC

First posted: Tuesday, June 20, 2017 07:51 PM EDT | Updated: Tuesday, June 20, 2017 08:50 PM EDT. Toronto Sun.

Too many seniors living in Toronto’s public housing communities feel trapped and afraid. They live surrounded by gangs, guns, drugs, violence, prostitution, endemic crime and unstable neighbours.

For too long, public officials allowed a tiny group of thugs and criminal tenants to terrorize the majority of residents who live in Toronto Community Housing Corp. (TCHC) units. The elderly have been especially vulnerable.

That’s why we welcome a city executive committee decision this week that recommends breaking up TCHC.

The committee recommended council move 28,000 seniors living in 83 senior-designated buildings into a new Seniors Housing and Services agency, independent from TCHC and more directly accountable to City Council.

“This new entity would have a laser-like focus on serving seniors and begin a crucial alignment of all of our services to a rapidly growing seniors’ population,” was how it was described by Mayor John Tory.

There’s no question seniors in public housing are poorly served now. And there’s no question breaking apart TCHC will be a massive, challenging and expensive undertaking.

(But concentrating all the bad apples in one basket and all the frail old seniors in another will make for easier living for old folks. But it will cause friction between govt and unions as nobody will want to staff the buildings housing thugs, drug addicts and prostitutes! With the added problem that the public will get a more clear look at the kind of people that our LIE-beral govt is spending so much money on- with such small results! A lot of Cdns are disgusted that govt is supplying safe injection sites so hard core addicts can get high quicker and easier.)

(Govt tells us that the safe injection sites are better for the community but we think they lie! Govt talks about nurses encouraging addicts to get help but what manner of advice and persuasion works on an addict focused on that next fix-right now- with some LIE-berals do- gooder nattering way off in the background- at huge cost! Some Cdns think that tough love might be a better and cheaper addiction control measure-watching the guy next to you convulsing and dying with the needle loaded with poison still stuck in the arm might just sober up the addicts nearby?)

TCHC is Canada’s largest public housing landlord. It houses 110,000 tenants in 58,500 units but has a long list of woes, including a $1.6-billion repair backlog. The agency has a 90,000-person long, multi-year waiting list for social housing, is owed millions in tenant arrears and has hundreds of uninhabitable units. TCHC is also teetering on long-term financial disaster, a “dire” and “untenable” future papered with million-dollar deficits and billions worth of unfunded needs.

It’s a mess that’s been decades in the making, one that was downloaded onto the city by Queen’s Park and has only gotten worse since.

(Oh lets get it straight- Toronto City Hall Hogs were delighted to get all those apartment buildings so cheap with the help of Queens Park! The buildings were pretty much extorted from private sector landlords by a combination of rent controls and tax increases! Silly Hall socialists were delighted to offer up all those apartment units at bargain rates in exchange for votes! Its just too bad a cabal of idiot politicians never considered the decaying condition of the buildings. They also neglected to consider the effects of almost unregulated immigration as LIE-berals bought ethnic votes by letting in any person capable of marking an `X` beside a LIE-beral name on a ballot at election time- regardless of ability to be self supporting in our grossly indebted economy!)

(Toronto `leaders` are so desperate to cling to power that they believe it is unfair not to let undocumented- meaning ILLEGALS vote for them in elections! Our bankrupt school system has decided that they will accept any and all children without any questions or documents and to hell with the unfunded cost! But teachers who have decided we must be generous this way also expect they will continue getting THEIR shipments of gravy! We can go short but NEVER them! That is how it is with LIE-berals- they are most generous with things they do NOT OWN and Margaret Thatcher said it best with this: “the trouble with LIE-berals is that they eventually run out of other peoples money”!)

But it doesn’t matter who’s to blame. The public is sick of that game.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government has stepped up and promised billions for social housing nationally, including expected money for TCHC repairs.

(Yeah and much of the promised Trudope money will NOT show up unless LIE-berals win another election in 2019! Its typical LIE-beral bait and bribe while the buildings rot to the point they cannot be repaired and must be torn down!)

City Council could take a critical step forward by supporting a separate social housing agency for seniors, and by tackling other reforms needed to fix TCHC.

That just leaves Kathleen Wynne’s provincial Liberals, who have so far failed to do more to help with repairs.

(And of course the new LIE-beral Housing minister has just come out slamming the city for deliberately under funding affordable housing! The pot calling the kettle black! There is plenty of blame to go around! From federal govt who lets in too many unsuitable immigration failures, provincial govt that encourages civil service Hog greed in exchange for votes- to the municipal leaders with their insane sanctuary city crap they and we cannot afford!)

All three levels of government have an opportunity to fix a real, chronic and meaningful problem.

We hope all three will get it right.

(Not a hope for that as all three govts desperately need more gravy to buy the continued Hog support that they need to cling to power at any price!)
