It will be a special Christmas for another Syrian family reunited in Vancouver.
Hugs and tears as Coquitlam resident Mirna Naklah sees her mother and two brothers at YVR on Friday.
“I couldn’t recognize her because I haven’t seen her for 10 years,” she says. “And my two brothers as well. It took me a moment to think, ‘OK, whoa, those are my brothers, thank God they’re here.’ Thank you, Mr Trudeau.”
The Holy Nativity church in Langley rallied around Naklah to privately sponsor her family and bring them back together.
