Yesterday, Wednesday April 12, 2017, Malala Yousafzai became an honorary citizen of Canada and delivered a speech in Canada’s  House of Commons. School libraries abound with books about Malala and any class doing a social justice unit will have included her in it’s lessons in discussions about the importance and impact of educating girls – in safe communities.

In her speech she says “Your motto and your stand “welcome to Canada” is more than a headline or a hashtag. It is the spirit of humanity that every single one of us would yearn for if our family was in crisis. I pray that you continue to open your homes and your hearts to the world’s most defenceless children and families, and I hope your neighbours will follow your example.”
