According to the popular rental cite, Guelph would be one of the best places in Canada to survive a zombie apocalypse.

Having some fun, the site used five categories of data essential to surviving such an apocalypse: vulnerability, mobility, hideout, supplies and safety. It then ranked 35 Canadian cities.

The rankings can be found here.

Guelph, which received a perfect mark in the 'supplies' category, was third overall, behind Edmonton and Saskatoon.

Kitchener/Waterloo/Cambridge was ranked 25th.

"What if a new epidemic arises that turns people into zombies, or a war breaks out between the living and the dead? To determine the safest city in Canada in case of a hypothetical zombie apocalypse, we analysed various factors across five categories: Vulnerability, Hideouts, Supplies, Safety and Mobility. Based on our findings, we have identified the safest city in Canada," said a tongue-in-cheek press release from rentola.
