Moulding younger brains



Universities and colleges in Ontario have become hot beds of political persuasions while molding the minds of young folks. Many of these institutions are controlled by academic folks who want to indoctrinate graduates to the left of the political spectrum. Many students come into an institution open minded but vulnerable to professors and colleagues who are trying to shape their new perspectives on many issues that may have local and global impact.

Ontario is home to a diverse and thriving higher education sector, with a wide array of universities attracting students from across the globe. As the province continues to be a magnet for both domestic and international students, the dynamics of Ontario universities have come under scrutiny, particularly about the competition between local and foreign students. The influx of international students into Ontario universities has undoubtedly brought about significant changes to the educational landscape. These students often bring diverse perspectives, enriching the academic environment and contributing to the cultural fabric of the province. However, this trend has also raised questions about the impact on local students and the challenges they may face in this increasingly globalized educational setting.

One of the primary concerns often voiced by local students is the competition for admission to Ontario universities. As international student enrollment has surged in recent years, some have questioned whether local students are being edged out of their own institutions. The reality, however, is more complex. Ontario universities are committed to maintaining a balanced between domestic and international student populations, recognizing the value of diversity while ensuring that opportunities remain accessible to local students.

It is important to note that international students bring economic benefits to Ontario, as they often pay higher tuition fees, thereby contributing to the financial viability of universities. This in my estimation is not a good thing, because it continues to be all about the money and not perusing a higher education. The last ten years or so have been cash grabs for these universities and sidelining our local students to the back of the bus or throwing them out on the road. The emphasis has been on the money from wealthy international students who also contribute to destruction of our Canadian values and in some cases these students turn out to be connections for dictators abroad.

As well, many of these international students after graduating take our local jobs and less of the pie is available for our local students. Some local students worry that international graduates, particularly those with work permits, will compete for jobs in Ontario, potentially limiting opportunities for domestic students. Some may say that Ontario’s labor market is robust and offers a wide range of opportunities for skilled individuals. I on the other hand l beg to differ, as we need to have a balance and make sure that we at least give our local students a fair opportunity.

Ontario universities are trying to show that they are actively working to ensure that all students, regardless of their background, have access to a high-quality education and the support they need to succeed, however, it still comes down to who can pay the highest tuitions and unfortunately that is the foreign students. Ultimately, the dynamics of Ontario universities reflect the broader trends of globalization and the increasing interconnectedness of our world. We as an Ontarians should be concerned that these universities are using the image that we need to be globalist about accepting foreign students and they are trying to convince us that a diverse and inclusive environment is what we should be aiming for… l say… hog wash. We need to stay vigilant about protecting our future students and having a balanced attack on education with a diverse and fair outcome.
Producing politically charged students is what many universities in Ontario and throughout North America are graduating. This system of political persuasiveness has been around forever, but more so prominently today. On a personal note, my university experience is one that l needed to prepare my papers to the ideals of the professor who was giving the course. Let me explain, once you knew that the professor was left leaning… producing a right-wing paper with differing thoughts would not get you a good grade.

These universities have become breeding grounds for political corruption and developing students that will change the world for a more chaotic lifestyle. Religious beliefs and favoring a Muslim belief are rapidly growing fast and widespread amongst our communities. The unfortunate thing these days is that many stay silent because violence always seems to follow. The Palestinian/ Israel conflict along with the Ukrainian/ Russian conflicts have major presence within our universities from mainly foreign students who all seem to not care and take advantage of our local students and beyond. It appears we have a double whammy where we let in foreign students who pay high tuitions and they impose their political and religious thought on all, especially our local students who usually all remain silent.

The dynamics of Ontario universities reflect the complexities and opportunities that come with a globalized higher education landscape. While there are valid concerns about the impact of international students enrolling on local students, it’s crucial to recognize the potential benefits of a diverse and inclusive university environment if it is conducted fairly and not one sided. If we can keep it fair fostering a supportive and inclusive community, Ontario universities can continue to be at the forefront of providing a world-class education. However, we must continue to be vigilant and maintain pressure on our law makers to keep some sort of fairness when it comes to our educational process and graduating good competitive students to be able to compete on a global or local level.
