Canadian’s expressed reaction to the news of Malala Yousafzai being given honourary Canadian Citizenship and becoming a new Canadian.
Yousafzai is a Nobel Peace prize recipient.
I honestly think it’s awesome!
She’s done a lot of amazing things, so I think any sort of special titles we can give is a nice thing
Women in particular need role models today
Canada should be proud!
