Envoy Championed Women's Rights

Morocco's recently arrived ambassador says her country is ready to be a "bridge" between Canada and the rest of the world.

Speaking with Embassy from her office overlooking the Rideau Canal, Nouzha Chekrouni says she hopes that the relationship between her country and Canada can continue to grow as she attempts to shrink the ocean—described as a mere "roadway between two sidewalks" by one of her aides—that lies between the two nations.
