WATCH: Pink volcano steals show at Wynne’s school funding photo-op

A harmless photo-op turned somewhat less-than-innocent for Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne after a high school science project ended up resembling something...different than what was intended.


TORONTO – It’s hard to imagine a high-school science class volcano experiment making the news, but a big pink eruption has social media abuzz after it largely upstaged Premier Kathleen Wynne’s new student grant announcement.

Wynne and Reza Moridi, the minister of Training, colleges and Universities, visited Jarvis Collegiate Institute Tuesday to unveil changes to the Ontario Student Assistance Program, but only after checking out several students’ science projects.

Including one oddly coloured and suggestively shaped volcano.

Wynne joined students to help trigger an eruption, and a foaming explosion resulted.

However, some social media critics didn’t see the scientific merit.
