A new ranking has named Norway the most prosperous country in the world for the quality of its healthcare system, civil liberties and social fabric, while Canada has come out on top as being the most tolerant.

After measuring 142 countries across eight categories, the 2015 Prosperity Index put Norway at the top of the heap, followed by Switzerland and Denmark. In fact, Nordic and Scandinavian countries dominate the top 10 list, taking up half the spots.

For the index, analysts at the London-based think tank and charity, the Legatum Institute, ranked countries based on their economy, entrepreneurship and opportunity, governance, education, health, safety and security, personal freedom and social capital.

A scan of the top-10 list shows that the most prosperous countries – measured by income and quality of life – are found largely in the West, with the conspicuous absence of countries from Asia, Latin America, the Middle East or Africa.

Land of the free

Canada also stood out this year for being the “freest country in the world” with its tolerance of immigrants, minorities, freedom of expression and beliefs.

In fact, an overwhelming percentage of Canadians – 92 per cent – agreed that their country is a good place for immigrants, and another 94 per cent said they believe that they have the freedom to choose the course of their own lives.

Analysts also noted that Indonesia has become the fastest-rising country on the index, driven by a vibrant economy, easier internet access and improved living standards. The emerging country rose 21 places on the index over the last seven years.

As for the U.S., the country earned the dubious distinction of being the only Western country to register high levels of “state-sponsored political violence.” The events of the past year – the Baltimore protests and Ferguson unrest – pushed the country down to 33rd spot in the safety and security sub-category, making it comparable to Venezuela, the Dominican Republic and El Salvador.

Here are the top 10 most prosperous countries according to the Legatum Institute:

  1. Norway

  2. Switzerland

  3. Denmark

  4. New Zealand

  5. Sweden

  6. Canada

  7. Australia

  8. Netherlands

  9. Finland

  10. Ireland

So, what’s your point, Meathead?

Hmmm most tolerant?? It appears that your own Prime Minister isn’t very tolerant of those supposedly seeking a better life!
Are the opponents of undocumented immigration in Canada bigots too?

‘Respect our rules!’ Canada panics as thousands of illegal immigrants flee Trump’s America](

Remember, these immigrants, DOCA individuals included, must register at the border.
So America kicks them out, or sends the back to their country of ORAGIN, or worse, and allows them to travel to Canada?

Build A Big Beautiful Wall. approximately 3,987 miles. Almost thrice the length of the mexico US border, estimated at 1,933 miles, Alaska-Canada border alone is 1,538 miles.
Let America Pay For It.
Lock Him Up if he doesn’t!.

Canada will pay for the “Northern Wall” with the funds we collect from your excessive speeding tickets in Georgia and Tennesee!!

Robert …

Again you are barking up the wrong tree and displaying ignorance, or is it stupidity, on a subject you are demonstrating little knowledge and/or understanding of.

Amazing how we have a couple of, Americans who frequently love to come and attack Canadians . What a strange life they lead .

First if you would provide, or attempt to provide, any display that I am frequently attacking Canadians please do so. I would expect that once you count the times you will see it equals zero. What you see here is a response to an individual who appears to be unusually bothered by American politics to the point where he chooses to make very misguided (delusional ??) remarks on subjects he has no or little knowledge or understanding of. It seems he has joined the ranks of so many Americans that have yet to accept the results of our 2016 Presidential election and instead have developed Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS). I would certainly hope you have not contracted TDS yourself?

Perhaps he should have heeded the warnings!!

I really do find it simply amazing how many foreign to the US that have developed TDS! I drink the same water and breath the same air so it can’t possibly be in those the only two common factors! :shock:

Yes, but do you ingest large quantities of ‘Poutine’? :shock:

No and to be honest I had to look it up Poutine - Wikipedia . I might sound weird but that actually looks good. Kind of reminds me of pommes frites und mayonnaise. Not just any either but real German pommes frites und mayonnaise. :slight_smile:

Oh, but he can change how we think of him. With every new thread like this, he makes us think even less of him. I always figured that was what he was going for. He should try posting inspection related topics in the Canadian inspection forum and save this craap for NFE.

A good poutine is the ultimate feeling in potato nourishment!! When you think you have enough cheese, add a bit more. (And no!! doesn’t cause TDS).

… Auch pommes und mayo!!

Best regards,
Pat :smiley:

We might show up on a survey (or how many people?) as being the most tolerant, but we sure don’t go out of our way to encourage others to be as tolerant.

To censor the internet, 10 countries use Canadian filtering technology, researchers say | CBC News

"Ahmed Mansoor has been threatened, spied on, and beaten — all payback, the human rights activist believes, for his outspoken criticism of the United Arab Emirates’ numerous human rights violations, and its soaring crackdowns on dissent.

His activism ended with his arrest — but started, he has said, with the censorship of his popular online discussion forum. Experts now say it was blocked with help from Canadian technology that has repeatedly found itself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

As part of a globe-spanning investigation released Wednesday, researchers at the University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab say they have found fresh evidence that internet-filtering technology developed by Waterloo, Ont.-based Netsweeper is being used in 10 countries to censor access to news, religious content, LGBTQ+ resources, and political campaigns."

One wonders if the Canadian Government use that against its own citizens?
