Are skylights a good idea for ventilation?

Is installing a venting skylight to release hot air from my a home a good idea?

I own a 100-year old two story semi in Toronto.  The attic is very well insulated and vented.  The second story builds up heat during the night.  We only use the central AC a few days a year on the on the really hot days.  The rest of the time I wish I could vent out the hot air and draw in the cooler night are thru open windows.  Is it a good idea to use a venting skylight or someother similar vent product to accomplish this?  Many thanks for your help
