Harper pledges another $12 million for Haiti

Funds earmarked for building to house Haitian government


On Tuesday, Stephen Harper visited the town of Jacmel, Haiti, where Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean was born. The visit kicked off Harper’s second day in the earthquake-ravaged country, where he will visit Canadian forces providing aid on the ground. In Jacmel, Harper will visit a clinic and a water-purification camp before heading to the town of Leogane. The Prime Minister announced on Monday that Canada will donate $12 million to construct a building to house Haiti’s national government.
