Calculates canberra distance between two vectors. In brief, the higher the canberra distance the greater the 'distance' between the two vectors (i.e. they are less similar).
numeric vector of ranks
numeric vector of ranks with compatible length to x
Returns the canberra distance for the two vectors
canberra_stability function is used
internally to return the canberra metric.
