Video message received from Sameer on November 21st, 2017

After receiving the video from her grand-son Sameer, Johanne Durocher published a message on Facebook "Le Canada doit aider Nathalie Morin à revenir au Canada" :


"Hello Nathalie supporters,

Today my grandson Samir sent me this video. 
Samir is asking me why I am not helping him return to Canada with his family.

In December 2016, Samir wrote a letter to the Canadian government in Arabic to request assistance for his family. In that letter he recounts how, a few months earlier, his father tried to choke him so hard that he believed he was going to die. The marks on his neck were so obvious that his teacher complained to the Saudi government. The Saudi government asked Samir not to repeat that story to the Canadian government.

Samir was born in Montreal on July 25, 2002.

What is the Trudeau government waiting to make representations to the Saudi government so that these five Canadians can safely return to Canada? 
Tomorrow, on Wednesday, don’t miss the Francs-Tireurs at 9 pm on Télé-Québec, where Benoît Dutrizac will present a segment on Nathalie’s story.

Thank you, 
Samir, Abdullah, Sarah and Fowaz’s grandmother"
