«A new global survey has placed Canada among the top 10 most peaceful countries in the world.
The Global Peace Index (GPI) compares 163 independent states and territories (99.7 per cent of the world’s population) according to their levels of peacefulness.
Up two positions from its 2017 ranking, Canada is ranked in an envious position at 6th overall. The worst it has ever been was 14th in 2010 and the best was fourth in 2012.
The top five countries on the 2018 list are Iceland, followed by New Zealand, Austria, Portugal, and Denmark. The least peaceful are Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Iraq, and Somalia.» CTV Montreal.
