yazidi children: Emad was reunited with his family in Winnipeg last year after a relative saw his picture, taken in a refugee camp, on social media, according to National Observer. Hesso says they'd hoped for a much longer meeting with Trudeau, so Emad could talk more about the plight of other Yazidi children and bringing more refugees to Canada.
