First member of sponsored Syrian refugee family arrives in Canada
Today we have an update on the story we brought you this week in Piya Chattopadhyay's documentary "The Drop" about a family of 8 asylum-seekers hoping to move to Canada.
Shortly after our documentary aired, the first member of the family, Anas, landed on Canadian soil this past Tuesday.
The rest of Anas' family is expected to arrive on December 6th.
Andrew FitzGerald is a member of the group of sponsors. He joined Piya Chattopadhyay in our Toronto studio.
