One - horse Universities

.

Petty local universities.

“The provincial University of Toronto was thrown open to Nonconformists, unluckily not before the practice of chartering sectarian institutions had been introduced, and Canada had been saddled with ‘one-horse universities.ʹ”—Prof. Goldwin Smith: Nineteenth Century, July, 1886, p. 21.
