Many of them do, that is why they flock up here in migratory groups, since a 
CDN university education is considerably less expensive, and with the buck 
the way it is even better for you South of the Border.
I think some of this has to do with other factors as weLL, I travel a lot on 
business in the US, and do you think you can get a weather report on Canadian 
cities while in Atlanta, or New Jersey, forget it you can get every city in 
the world like Seoul etc but not Toronto, Montreal. It seems that their is 
nothing North of the 49th parralel if you watch US TV.

Well I graduated from University of Toronto, known by some as the Harvard of 
the North. Or should we call Harvard the U of T of the South.

And yes, Toronto also had two consecutive world series wins north of the 49th.

Went  to Concordia in Montreal as well, and yes missed a few days for having 
to shovel that white stuff.
