Canada Ranked #2 Best Country In The World For "Quality Of Life"
You, as Canadians, should feel very proud.
Just when you thought Canada couldn't get any more awesome, we go ahead and secure a rather important world ranking.
No, I'm not talking about how Canada was ranked #2 in the world for women with the biggest breast sizes.

Countries were judged based on how well they meet society's basic needs, the foundations of well being and how much opportunity the country has to offer.
Basic needs include: Nutrition and basic medical care, water and sanitation, shelter and personal safety.
Foundations of well being include: Access to basic knowledge, access to information, health and environmental quality.
Opportunity includes: Personal freedom and choice, access to advanced education, tolerance and inclusion and personal rights.
133 countries were ranked and Canada came in at #2 overall in the world.
