Canadians are the second happiest group in the world according to a new study released by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
The index covers 11 areas: housing, incomes, employment, social relationships, education, the environment, the administration of institutions, health, general satisfaction, security and the balance between work and family.
The United States finished seventh, Turkey finished last. Australia ranked first in the overall happiness scale.
So, why is Canada in 2nd place on the World Happiness Scale? Why aren’t we number one?
#5. That whole no stat in February thing.
#4. Last year we were too apologetic for being in 1st place.
#3. Ben Mulroney (Brian too..).
#2. We are still recovering from a bad case of election-roids.
#1. Apparently “G’day mate” trumps “Eh”.
