Canada becoming more attractive to students from Hong Kong, Gertler tells South China Morning Post

International students, including many from Hong Kong, are coming to the University of Toronto in greater numbers in the wake of Brexit and the election of U.S. President Donald Trump, says U of T President Meric Gertler.

The increase is also due to U of T’s rank as one of the top public universities in the world, he tells the South China Morning Post, Hong Kong's English-language newspaper.

People with questions about community -- what it means to be part of one, or excluded from one – had an opportunity this week to hear a diverse range of perspectives at a "Human Library" at the University of Toronto.

The sixth annual event held by Hart House included 14 “books” – or "human stories," as event organizers prefer to call them – for 20-minute conversations with the public.
