Justin Trudeau wins hearts by building pillow fort with a little girl

By Hayley Bradbrook

Justin Trudeau made five-year-old Bella Moose’s dreams come true when he built a pillow fort with the young girl after she won CBC Kid’s contest to become “Canada’s Prime Minister For A Day.”

The tiny future leader joined the PM for a day of work at his office in Ottawa. And while running the country looked fun and all, what little Bella really wanted to do was build a fort with the 45-year-old politician. Being the fun-loving dad of three that he is, Justin happily obliged.

The duo got to work, using a variety of objects (think couch cushions, wooden chairs, a table and a fluffy maple leaf-printed blanket) to bring their fortress to life. After completing their masterpiece, both Bella and Justin beamed with pride as they admired their handiwork.

Bella won the opportunity to spend time with Justin after she submitted her idea on what she would do if she led the country. "As prime minster, I would make sure everyone has homes and everyone is safe. I would hug everyone. I would make sure animals and the world around us are kept safe. I would make sure every Canadian is healthy. I would show kindness to everyone,” she wrote in her proposal.

CBC Kids will air the segment "Prime Minister For A Day" during its Canada Day special on July 1st.

This is the second time this month that Justin has made someone’s day. Just last weekend a group of teenagers in Vancouver couldn’t believe their eyes when they realized the Liberal leader had accidently photobombed their prom photos. The unexpected sighting was captured when Justin was enjoying a jog along the Stanley Park Seawall.
