Invoking cheer amongst the audience, Malala said, “They say that he’s the second-youngest Prime Minister in Canadian history. He does yoga. He has tattoos. And a lot more.”
She also said that Justin Trudeau is an inspiration to many, “It is not just an honorary citizenship of Canada; it is also being Canada’s friend, and I warmly accept it. You are a true example to the world of what it means to stand up for humanity, and I’m hopeful you will inspire many more countries and many more leaders to follow your footsteps.”
“I want to thank Canada for its passion for girls’ education, for its passion for humanity, for refugees, and for standing up for women’s rights, and for peace.” She further added.
