Wouldn’t you rather live in Calgary? Poor Toronto lost out to the Albertan energy kings in a new gauge of city livability released today. According to a report from the Toronto Board of Trade, Toronto shares fourth-most-prosperous place with Boston, London, and New York, while Calgary sits alone at the top. While T.O. was a K.O. in its ranking for livability, its economy was given a sub-par letter grade “C”; and though Toronto took home the gold in “labour attractiveness” for its high immigrant population, it came in dead last for disposable income growth. In an article in the Globe today, board chairman Paul Massara said that “while the Toronto region is doing well, it is not doing as well as it ought to.” The report compared twenty-one cities and metropolitan areas using social and economic indicators to determine both the quality of life and financial well-being of its citizens.
