Country's Leader Takes Time To Build a Pillow Fort With a Little Girl

If you were asked what you would do if you were the leader of your country for a day, what would you say?

Health care reform, changes to the education system and environmental impact assessment may come to the top of people's mind.

For a 5-year-old girl, her answer wasn't to fight world hunger or get longer recesses in school, it was to build a pillow fort in her new office- and that's exactly what happened. The photos are absolutely heartwarming.

What happens when a 5-year-old gets to be prime minister for the day? Pillow fort! . . . We were in Ottawa yesterday...

5-year-old Bella from Thompson, Manitoba won the CBC Kids contest PM For a Day.

Her winning idea was: "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."

As the winner, Bella and her family got to meet Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Ottawa, where they built an awesome couch fort in the PM's office.

They rearranged the furniture in the PM's office to make the perfect structure for them to relax under.

Covered in a blanket of maple leafs, the Canadian leader was able to relate to the young girl who may be inspired to one day run for office herself.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has 3 children of his own. Xavier James who will be turning 10 this year, Ella-Grace Margaret who is 8 and Hadrien Grégoire who is 3.

You can see all of Bella's adventures as Prime Minister on a special that will be aired on July 1st.
