The United States’ northern neighbor, Canada, has always had bragging rights as the more peaceful of the two nations. In fact, it ranks higher than any North American country and has the second highest ranking for a non-European country. In 2015, the Liberal Party was voted into office, which has had a positive impact on Canada’s peacefulness. The party brought with it a progressive immigration policy, a greater budget for humanitarian aid, and the withdrawal of combat troops in Iraq and Syria. In addition, experts agree that Canada will likely improve over the next few years. Canada earns another point for having some of the highest standards of living in the world. Not to mention, the country is absolutely beautiful. From the incredible panoramas of Vancouver, to the bursting metropolis of Toronto, to the cultural hub of Quebec, Canada is one of the places to visit and live.
