Montreal has ranked amongst the top 5 cities in the North America who offer the best quality of life. This, according to a survey conducted by Mercer which studied several different factors including: air quality, crime, housing, personal freedom and political stability.

That last factor might have been the only reason we didn't rank higher on the list. But hey, we still made to top 25 in the world and we're the 4th best in all of North America which means that not a single US city outranks us. Take that Delaware!

So once again Canada is victorious over the US ("Once again" because we already beat them at beer and hockey) So bask in this temporary joy of knowing that we're just better than they are.
