Harper makes Aga Khan honorary Canadian

The Aga Khan, spiritual leader of Ismaili Muslims worldwide, has become the fifth person to receive honorary Canadian citizenship in recognition of his humanitarian work advancing religious tolerance and pluralism.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper offered the Aga Khan Canadian citizenship at a founding ceremony for a Muslim cultural centre and museum in the Toronto suburb of Don Mills.

Harper previously granted honorary Canadian citizenship to The Dali Lama in 2006, and Aung San Su Kyi in 2007.
