他的母親說： “我非常感謝加拿大政府所做的一切，及現在所有在這裡的人、幫助過我們的人。我們三年沒見面了… 這很難，因為他被俘了很長時間。我現在很高興。”

sought asylum: 尋求庇護
Emad Tamo was separated from his family in 2014 after his family was captured by ISIS. His mother and four siblings, who are Yazidi refugees, managed to escape and sought asylum in Winnipeg. The family thought Emad was dead.
Emad’s picture popped up on social media in July after the battle of Mosul, when Iraqi forces were tending to him.
With the help of the Canadian government, Emad boarded a plane to Canada and arrived in Winnipeg early Thursday morning.
“I am very thankful for everything the Canadian government has done and for everyone who is here right now and who has helped us,” she said. “I haven’t seen him in three years… it’s is very hard because he’s been held captive for long. I am very happy.”
