University of Toronto has missed out on a golden..


Recommended Posts

opportunity to be the owner and host of part of the U20 Word Cup of Soccer, one of the largest global tournaments in the world, instead it took the path to show what a parochial 2nd rate institution it in fact is. It had the opportunity to have the name University of Toronto to be named and shown to billions of people worldwide on tv. Think of that exposure and the marketing potential that was foregone, to bring in thousands of potential foreign students to its university. Instead internal bickerings over site lines for profs and possible ocassional noise has apparently scuttled the deal.

It just goes to show the U of T is not a world class global institution but a snobby 2nd rate Canadian institution. What Toronto, a city of 5 million people that can't get a stadium built with a 40 million government grant.
