Canada wins Top Quality of Life Nation for 4th year in a row
So what's up with that guys
And yes, it's a friendly taunt
These awards are nothing but propaganda. Food inflation in Canada is easily 10% per year. But officially it is nothing.
People with functional brains and good educations can evaluate the reality for themselves.
One metric that should tell you what you need to know is the existence of food banks. Canadian cities need them
as do US cities. I have not heard of food banks in Russia. And food banks are not some luxury feature of the
super rich west. The key difference is that housing costs are so onerous in Canada and the US in major cities
that it is very easy to have a monthly income deficit even if one or even two earners exist in a household.
The working poor is something that is rare in Russia because the big bad USSR left people with their own housing
for which they do not have to pay rents or mortgages. Of course, they have utilities and the post-Soviet
advent of municipal taxes, but they can still afford to feed themselves.
