HALIFAX – Nova Scotia Premier Darrell Dexter says the provincial government will give $50,000 to the MassGeneral Hospital for Children in response to the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

Dexter rose in the provincial legislature today to express his condolences after Monday’s bombings killed three people and injured more than 170 others.

He said Nova Scotians share a special connection with the people of the city, particularly after Bostonians helped after the Halifax Explosion in 1917.

He also paid tribute to the volunteers and first responders who helped following the explosions.
