The Clean Cut: 5-year-old girl becomes prime minister of Canada

Posted July 7

A 5-year-old girl named Ella became Canada's youngest prime minister … for a day.

Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's "Studio K" held a contest for one child to be prime minister for a day, and the young girl from Thompson, Manitoba, was the winner.

Ella and her family spent the day with "Studio K's" Gary the unicorn and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and Ella was able to enact her initiatives to have more hugging and for everyone to be kind.

In the video, Trudeau takes Ella on a tour of Parliament Hill and his office, tells her about his family and his memories of when his father was prime minister and builds a fort with her and Gary.

"Studio K" is a Canadian children's show with puppets reminiscent of "Sesame Street" hosting an interactive show, often featuring Canadian celebrities.
