Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gets rock star treatment at an economic summit in Manila. He had to be whisked away by security as a mob of adoring journalists and staff swarmed around him. While Pacific rim nations tackled trade issues at the APEC, twitter users were busy debating who was the handsome "hottie" of the summit - Trudeau or Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, who got a lot of attention for his clean cut looks. This group of volunteers gave Trudeau a slight edge and swooned when he shook hands with them.

Trudeau won Canada's election last month promising "sunny ways" and respect.
