Canadian prime minister to address Knesset in January

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper will become the second world leader to address the current Knesset on January 20, following a speech last month by French President Francois Holland.
Harper will lead a delegation to Israel of 200 Canadians. Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein called Harper "a true, courageous friend of Israel" and said he was sure the visit would further strengthen ties between the two countries.
