Young Nobel Peace Prize winner to be honoured today in Ottawa
Some cabinet ministers and M-Ps admit they're excited they'll be in Parliament today to witness the youngest-ever Nobel peace prize winner be given long-delayed honorary Canadian citizenship.
Nineteen-year-old Pakistani girls' education activist Malala Yousafzai, who survived a Taliban assassination attempt in 2012, will also address Parliament.
The idea to commemorate her work began in 2013, and Yousafzai was to receive the honour from then-prime minister Stephen Harper at a Toronto-area school on October 22nd, 2014.
But on that morning, a gunman killed a Corporal Nathan Cirillo of Hamilton, at the National War Memorial and stormed Parliament Hill.
