He's a McGill University student and McGill is sometimes called 'The Harvard of Canada."   It's a very good school so, yeah, he's a very smart kid.  Good luck to him!

Sounds like the bills would be the only logical fit for him since he will have to study and intern in Canada. I'm sure our marketing gurus are all over this guy because he could ignite the growing Canadian fan base. It's funny the new cast of characters that could be on this roster next year, maybe he can room with Brandon Spikes on road trips.

Don't trust Canadians.  Lost list of trouble makes:
Avril Lavigne
Justin Bieber
Allan Thicke
Pam Anderson
Peter North
Bryan Adams
Sarah McLachlan
Keanu Reeves
Nelly Furtado



But, sure, why not.

This is a great list....only made such by the inclusion of Peter North. That's hilarious.

Draft him.  Provide him with a translator for the training camp and the first year.  Have him give snowshoe classes to draft picks from the SEC.  Also "how to find out where your car is after a snowstorm" and "why healthy women are more fun in the sack".

The article mentions he is projected as a 3rd or 4th round prospect.

Or #1 overall in the CFL Draft.

The Ottawa Roughriders disbanded a couple years ago IIRC.  I'm glad to see Ottawa will have football again, but a little disappointed they will not be called the Roughriders.  Now they are the Ottawa Redblacks.

I always found it amusing that the CFL had 9 teams and two of them were called Roughriders.  Well, one team was the Rough Riders (two words).  I once heard an explanation that the Rough Riders from the East (Ottawa) were named for loggers who rode logs down the river.  The Western (or Midwest) Rough Riders rode horses, moving cattle around.

Of course there can no way be a list of US trouble makers.

I thought he was French?  Pretty sure he's French.  Yeah.  He's French.

Google "Famous Americans" then click on images.  It is mind boggling and confusing - clearly I can understand why the world has a poor opinion of "us."
