Casino En Ligne, a guide to Canadian casinos, has analyzed a number of cities to decide where in Canada you’d have the highest chance of surviving a zombie apocalypse.
The group has analyzed 24 different Canadian cities using a variety of metrics, and found some interesting statistics in the process. First off, here are the metrics that were used to give each city a different score.
- Population density (people per square km)
- Number of renewable energy sources
- Number of outdoor spaces
- Number of building basements
- Number of hospitals and support units
- Number of military bases
- Low temperatures (degrees celsius)
- Water flow quality
- Number of hunting gear shops
Ottawa was found the safest city, due in part to the fact it has 384 hospitals and seven military bases. Another factor is the wide array of wind and solar energy used by the city, which wouldn’t leave survivors reliant on electricity when the power grid goes down.
Meanwhile, Montreal has the highest number of hunting gear stores at 34, as well as the highest amount of houses with basements. Mount Pearl and Iqaluit rank as the worst cities, partly because of the cold environment that would make surviving even more difficult. Here’s the full list of the top ten cities.
