Just to be a nitpicker, CIS teams don't "pay" their players. They can award them Athletic Financial Awards, similar to NCAA athletic scholarships (but not near as big).

The only time I would use the word "pay" is when the student-athletes have an actual job, like working a hockey school or summer camp on campus.

"Top academic schools" that have limited athletic scholarship money have made that choice themselves. No one is stopping them from investing money in supporting student-athletes but their own policies. Alberta is ranked higher academically internationally than Queen's or RMC and they have no qualms in supporting student athletes. Nor does McGill (maybe not to Alberta levels ...).
