Drowned Syrian boy’s aunt says family will settle in Canada

The aunt of a Syrian boy whose lifeless body was photographed on a Turkish beach, sparking worldwide outrage at the refugee crisis, said she hopes her family members will be in Canada by Christmas. Tima Kurdi said Friday that Canada has approved her application to bring her brother Mohammed and his family to Canada, but that security checks are still underway. Citizenship and Immigration Canada spokesman Remi Lariviere would only confirm that the department has communicated with the Kurdi family. “We can confirm that the processing of their application is proceeding well,” said Lariviere.
