    The confusing thing is that Burkes along with some others are all advertised here, am I wrong or is this ad. somehow affiliated with Athabasca.

    I am surprised that a UK mill would call itself Burkes. The word Burke (or Berk) doesn't suggest Edmund Burke or Burke's Peerage to me, but rather the severe insult from Cockney slang (rhymes with Berkshire Hunt).

    Perhaps the insult is no longer employed in England, but still retains this use in the former colonies?

    It's conceivable that a semi-legitimate school might sell honorary degrees, but not that it would solicit honorary degree customers with flattering direct mail. OK, you win.
