So Norway gave more than the US, and Italy gave triple that of the US.

Time for some phone calls...

Hey Marty... How about Canada? [Linked Image]

Come on Canadians; let's see what we can do to persuade our Government to increase that $66,000!!!

It took me quite a while surfing through our enormous Federal Government's list of web pages but I finally found:
