TORONTO -- The city has survived ice storms and floods, and even its admitted crack-smoking mayor can't bring the city down.

According to Grosvenor Group, a London-based property company led by the Duke of Westminister, Toronto ranked top among 50 global cities for its resiliency.

In second place was Vancouver, followed by Calgary. The least resilient city was Jakarta, Indonesia.

"The Canadian cities came out overall very well," Kate Brown, Grosvenor's group director for sustainability team, said Monday. "They've got the brilliant combination for both low vulnerability and high-depth capacity."
