Montreal at 60, and below Austin, Vancouver, SD, Orlando, Miami, and Vegas (??????) is weird.

Just another list full of subjective opinions. All good to ignore.

I agree with the sentiment in general, but Vancouver is fairly consistently in the top-10 of most 'livable' global cities list, so not surprised to see them ahead of Montreal (though I agree Montreal is a gem of a city). San Jose is......up there.

Montreal's rankings have dipped across the board ever since we shut down two years in a row from covid. There's also a Canadian bias in these polls since Canada's rep has taken a hit.

In the end, these are not meaningful, everyone I know would put Montreal in the top 5 for N.A and over most of these cities. And that's not me being biased, we're building a city for people, not for the elites.

Hmm.

Austin higher than Vancouver, Houston, Philadelphia and Montreal?

Who compiled this list? A recently graduated binge drinker who now works in tech? LOL

Why do people think Florida is even habitable?

Stick to your swamp bubble, okay?

You haven’t traveled a lot if you think any of those cities a “bottom of the barrel” on global scale.
