Today’s throne speech will include a very special announcement: the Government of Canada plans to give honourary citizenship to Malala Yousafzai.

The 16 year old Pakistani teen was already an outspoken advocate for girls education –  when she was critically injured on October 9th, 2012 when a Taliban gunman shot her while she was riding home on a school bus.

Malala will become just the sixth person to be given honorary Canadian citizenship.

The others are :

Nelson Mandela

The Dalai Lama

Aung San Suu Kyi

The Aga Khan

and Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg.
