I found this gem under the headline 'Live with it Canada, we're better'.

Melbourne's won the 'Most Liveable City' title, with a score of 97.5% - presumably 2.5% of the score is for being 'gracious winners'.

For the tl;dr crowd, here's the top 10...


1 Melbourne
2 Vienna
3 Vancouver
4 Toronto
5 Calgary
6 Sydney
7 Helsinki
8 Perth
9 Adelaide
10 Auckland

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

I suspect this was not a fair contenst. Only two of those ten are non english speaking locals. English speakers prepared this and probably counted agaist winning if english was not the native language of the city.
