I enquired of the Canadian Cooperative Wildlife Health Centre - Ontario 
division for the list of most likely diagnoses for this syndrome.  The 
most likely neurological disease to affect populations of 
squirrels that have been diagnosed here (Guelph is 30 min by car from 
Waterloo) is 
Baylisascaris larval migrans.  Rabies is a very rare and distant 
differential diagnosis in this species.
