So there's less demand every year for spots in university, so you can't be selective.

It is the opposite problem in Ontario and Alberta. Growing populations fueled by Canadian migration plus immigration. Lots of competition to get into provincial universities. Therefore you can be highly selective. Simple law of supply and demand.
