Calling it 'historic,' the Ontario provincial government made a major funding announcement in Science North on Wednesday.

Minister of Energy and Sudbury MPP Glenn Thibeault said the province will spend $16 million on the science centre and Dynamic Earth over the next two years.

Thibeault said the province invested in Science North because of what the science centre means for Northern Ontario.

"It's an economic driver when it comes to tourism. This is going to generate more tourism dollars for us. It's going to create jobs. It's going to actually really tell people the importance of science," Thibeault said. "So, this is just a win, win, when it comes to the economy, tourism and education." Read more.
