    What a disastrous mess. I grew up in Sudbury, was the top student in every school I attended, valedictorian, etc. Even back then – mid 80s – I never, ever even considered attending Laurentian. It had a reputation then as a not-great university, except perhaps in a couple of subjects. I went to Waterloo and Toronto. And yet, I’m still surprised at just how bad this mess is.
