Canada’s Justin Trudeau speaks to the crowd outside Rideau Hall

Canada’s new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks to the crowd outside Rideau Hall after the government’s swearing-in ceremony in Ottawa. Liberal leader Trudeau named a young, ethnically diverse and gender-equal cabinet on Wednesday as he was sworn into office as Canada’s 23rd prime minister, marking the end of nearly a decade of Conservative rule. Trudeau, 43, kicked off his majority government with some controversy with his decision to name an equal number of men and women to a slimmed-down cabinet, the first time gender parity has been achieved in Canada’s team of ministers.
