That sites list is outdated anyways. Canada actually slipped out of the UN's top 10 list this year. That's okay though. We held #1 for most of the 1990's. Time to let everyone else catch up and have a turn.
Its not that you guys are doing bad now its just that countries like Japan are catching up faster mostly because they weren't affected too much by the recession that hit countries like America hard and since Canada has a lot of ties with America they were affected too, but I'm sure you know all this I don't even know why I'm explaining this to you?

Canada has dropped out of the 2013 list. I've no idea why though?

I'm surprised the USA still ranks so highly.

With what red flag and prospective signs we have in situ at this present time, I wouldn't rank it above 8th or so in these lists, and I suspect it will struggle to be in the top 10 by the next decade.

Well compared to the rest of the world it is still one of the best places to live. Look how many people would love to live there if they had the opportunity.

Undoubtedly. And I suspect it will still be one of the best places in the world to live for the foreseeable future. I'm just talking about rankings at the very top of the list where the differences are narrower or more nuanced.
