"Jinnah was a great Muslim leader. He played a dynamic role in the creation of the nation of Pakistan in 1947. And to me he is George Washington of Pakistan," said Mike Colle, Ontario's Minister for Citizenship and Immigration.

The amount, she said, had been increased to $50,000. It is awarded annually to one continuing undergraduate student at the university.
