Malala receives Honorary Canadian citizenship

Teenage Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai called on Canada’s leaders to take real action to improve educational opportunities for women in a speech to the country’s Parliament.

She was speaking in Ottawa after becoming an honorary Canadian citizen on Wednesday.

And the 19-year-old made a humorous reference to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s celebrity status – noting his tattoos and suggesting that meeting him was more exciting to some than the citizenship.
