  1. I would disagree with you on the state of education in Canada. It is better than many other countries. The idea of the poor education system has been promoted by tutoring companies that have spread like a disease in Canada preying on gullible parents. Kumon Math, Oxford, Abacus etc., are no match for the schools. The tutors are not educators and have no qualifications in teaching. They are franchisees of corporations who are interested in profit.
