Top countries included Australia, Brazil, France, India, Pakistan, USA, United Kingdom, Philippines, UAE and Germany.
From the moment he has taken control of the Prime Minister’s seat as second youngest PM in Canada’s history- he has made records.
After rousing his party from third in the polls to first place on voting day, the Liberal party won a surprise majority, taking 184 of the 338 seats in parliament with representatives in every province and roughly 40% of the popular vote, according to the Guardian.
He takes pride in calling himself a ‘feminist’ and he said that he will keep doing that until his declaration is met with a ‘shrug’
He surprised the world with his diverse selection of his cabinet with ministers – 15 women and 15 men – mostly aged under 50 in a team marking both a generational change and a commitment to reflecting Canada’s diversity.
And the reason he has for such gender openness is “Because it’s 2015.”
As a Canadian PM, he made his first official state visit to the White House in nearly 20 years.
The list doesn’t stop here.
During his United States visit, a student told him that he finds it great that Trudeau has so many Punjabis in his cabinet.
“I have more Sikhs in my cabinet than Modi does,” said a visibly amused Trudeau.
Punjabi is now effectively the third language of Canada’s parliament.
Sikh-Canadians in the Canadian cabinet include Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi, Small-Business Minister Bardish Chagger and Innovation Minister Navdeep Singh Bains.
On the other hand, there are only two Sikh Cabinet ministers in the Modi’s government — Maneka Gandhi, who is a Sikh by birth, and Harsimrat Kaur Badal — the food processing minister.
