Chinese parents and why they send their kids to Toronto

There is much surprise Tuesday following a survey of Chinese home buyers about how Chinese nationals buy property in Toronto and elsewhere in Canada because they love the education system. This may be, but those who know anything about affluent parents in Shanghai and Beijing will be familiar with the nearly 20-year pattern which starts with their children’s safety. They know first and foremost that their offspring are much more likely to be safe in Toronto than in New York. That and the history of Canada as a friend, more or less, during the tenuous days of Marxist mismanagement of China, make this an easy destination.
