Laureen Harper and Peter McKay revealed Canada’s $100,000 baby gift for His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge – a donation to Winnipeg-based Canadian Centre for Child Protection.
"We’re here because we love our children," Harper, the wife of the Prime Minister and a champion in the fight against cyber bullying said announcing the baby gift in Winnipeg with Justice Minister McKay, a recent first-time dad.
People around the world are sending the royal baby all kinds of gifts. McKay called Canada’s present to baby George a "living gift" that will help protect children from cyber bullying. The recent deaths of several teens bullied mercilessly by social media – including 15-year-old Todd Loik of North Battleford, Sask. - highlight the problem.
"This is a suitable gift on behalf of the entire Canada," McKay said.
The $100,000 gift will be used by the Centre to develop educational resources, said executive director Lianna McDonald.
