Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne visited the University of Toronto Mississauga campus today as part of a 10-day tour to hear from students at post-secondary campuses across the province.
 
University of Toronto President Meric Gertler and U of T Mississauga Principal Deep Saini greeted Wynne, who was accompanied by Mississauga-Erindale MPP Harinder Takhar, Mississauga-Streetsville MPP Bob Delaney and Mississauga-Brampton South MPP Amrit Mangat.
 
Wynne’s campus tour began at Deerfield Hall, where she spent about an hour chatting informally with students at the Northside Bistro. Premier Wynne inquired about the challenges students face, and spoke at length with biology PhD candidate Yohann Fernandes about his research on fetal alcohol syndrome. Wynne also responded to questions about the proposed provincial carbon pricing system, and encouraged students to “keep pushing for change.”

Wynne then toured Deerfield’s new rehearsal space with fourth-year theatre and drama student Zachary Zulauf.
 
Wynne concluded her visit with a stop at a first-year chemistry lab, where she participated in a lab demonstration led by teaching assistant George Li.
