Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has refused to say who will cover security costs for Prince Harry and his family while they are in Canada. Trudeau says that discussions on the matter were ongoing, adding he had not spoken to the Queen about it. Public Safety Minister Bill Blair, the cabinet member responsible for the RCMP, says an assessment of the security needs for the family was underway. The prince, his wife Meghan and their eight-month-old son Archie are reportedly staying at a mansion north of the B.C. capital. Buckingham Palace has announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will give up public funding and try to become financially independent. They spent the holiday season on Vancouver Island, but it's unclear where in Canada they will settle. (The Canadian Press)
