A dream: escape Syria to find refuge in Canada

Tima Kurdi, the aunt of Alan and Galip Kurdi, who immigrated to Canada several years ago, reported that she submitted a request to the Canadian Government to host her brother and his family. The application was rejected in June 2015. However, the Canadian authorities claim that the documentsation submitted was incomplete (Smith, 2015).

‘Oh Canada’, this song, written by Missy Higgins in 2016, refers to the Kurdi family’s story as representative of the hopes and dreams of many asylum-seekers to reach countries where their human rights and their rights to asylum will be respected, and their desire to join their family reated in a respectful and humane manner.
