A report published last month points the way to a prosperous Canada in a thriving world economy, with Canadian schools educating millions of international students.
It's an attractive idea, especially these days for the British Columbia government, as The Tyee reported last week. But as that news story also noted, before leaping in, federal and provincial governments had better figure out the true costs of doing this kind of global business.
You'd think a 122-page report with the cumbersome title "International Education: A Key Driver of Canada's Future Prosperity" would fill in a lot of those numbers. You would be wrong.
