Subject: too many universities in Ontario
I think one university is more than enough, university education should be for the elites, right? UofT is enough. all other universities are just waste of spaces and tax dollars.

Is it because there are 10 million people in Ontario, so the Ontario government has to establish this many universities?

Even if UofT is the only university in Ontario, it will have to admit all people, including those destined to Seneca. Where is your elite status then???

Those destined to go to Seneca College are those destined to live on the streets.

Uoft is doing a pretty job for competing for the best students in Ontario in a province full of universities.

while Uoft compete for students against Western, Queen´s, Waterloo, McGill compete against Concordia, and UBC compete against S(T)FU.

It´s easy to become an elite university. 1) Locate it where most of the people live. 2) Restrict access. 3) Provide good education. The second part is more important for a true elite. That´s why Harvard, Yale and Princeton are elite schools, something UofT will never be. The reason is UofT cannot restrict access in a way Harvard can.

McGill doesn´t have to compete against Concordia. McGill is one of the best universities in Canada whereas Concordia is just a second tier university. The brightest students attend McGill, and Concordia doesn´t even come close.

MgGill restricts access. Concordia does not. Concordia is adding new buildings in order to expand enrolment. A school that is growing cannot be considered elite until it reaches a point where it can restrict access.

Concordia is just another Seneca, that´s it.

Elitism is about restricting access to opportunities. It is a general mindset of arrogance or disregard for the general non-elite public.
