This lists are such a subjetive thing really. I mean, I have read the list and I would probably die of boredom in half of those cities. Each person has a different concept of what makes a city good to live in.

I was never a big fan of city vs. city rankings like these, too many relative factors pertaining to each city. Whatever, people love their lists.

Calgary and Ottawa were ranked first and third in the eco-city ranking which I found kinda neat.

highly debatable and Honolulu is very expensive, does cost factor into this
Auckland?
depends on what your looking for
they seem to have these city rankings every week, that shows you how debateable the topic is

Dude, that's the second time you mentioned that place this month. Are you from that town? Or is someone else on this board from that town?

The same group of cities always tends to be near the top of the list with only slight variability, how much debatability is there? It's either that the same types of people produce these surveys, or it's that the same cities score well in an unlimited number of categories. I'm going to go with the former.

It's strange to even mention Dunville. The toilet town of Port Colborne is probably better.

No, my friend's family has a cottage on Lake Erie about 20 minutes outside of Dunnville, so I spent a lot of time there during the summer as a kid/teenager and I like poking fun at it...
