Trump's biggest fans? Canadian universities

http://www.bbc.com/news/business-40557377

Canadian universities are seeing a surge in applications from overseas students, with the country's liberal, migrant-friendly image appearing to be an important attraction.
Students who might once have headed for the United States now seem to be reconsidering and seeing Canada as a North American alternative.
The University of Toronto, one of Canada's top-ranked universities, has seen interest rising sharply, including a 57% increase in applications from India.
This interest has converted into acceptances, says the university - with an overall 20% increase in overseas students accepting places for the autumn.
Wilfrid Laurier University says it has had a 32% increase in overseas students and McMaster University has seen an annual rise of 33%.
Making CANADA great Again! Hell Yeah!

So there is a positive to this, other countries are stepping out to be the leaders on inclusion and diversity. Its ok we had a good run.

Makes sense. I certainly wouldn't want to travel for school to a country that could slam the door on me because of my religious affiliation.

I guess Canadian universities will increase their admission fees soon.

Glad I don't have any kids.

Based on the thread title, I thought this was going to be about upper class Canadian students talking about how much they love Trump and hate liberals and just want more free speech and some other nonsense.

This is... better.

More room for my kids. Sweet!

I remember a really asshole Japanese kid in one of my college classes. He just went on and on about how he didn't like America and would never want to work in California. I was like, "I hope that tuition check is always paid on time, and there's non-stops at LAX every day for when you fuck off home." Dude was such a cock sucker.

I know the feeling you tell it to them phonies

"You suck. Go the fuck back to Oregon Japan. Locals rule, tourists suck! Places like this are ruined by tourists like you. "

Yeah, arrogant people with an unearned sense of superiority are the worst.
