Interesting numbers. I'm surprised Mexico didn't rank as high as Canada, as both are on our borders and their troubles can spill over into our country, the way the drug problem from Mexico already does.

Israel's number is higher than I would have thought. At 59%, their ranking is the same as Mexico's.

Difference is - Canadians for the most part at least speak english.
