Syrian refugee stranded in Malaysian airport for 7 months coming to Canada.

The Syrian refugee who spent seven months living in limbo at a Malaysia airport has announced on social media that he is on his way to Canada.

"For today, I am in Taiwan international airport. Tomorrow I will be reaching my final destination Vancouver, Canada," Hassan Al Kontar said in a video posted on Twitter Monday.

Laurie Cooper, part of a group in Whistler, B.C., that has been raising money to sponsor the 36-year-old, said she learned a few days ago that his release from Malaysia was imminent.

"It's unbelievable after all these months," said Cooper. "There's a lot of tears and a lot of joy."

Al Kontar, who is from Dama, Syria, worked as an insurance marketing manager in the United Arab Emirates from 2006 to 2012. He eventually lost his work permit after the Syrian conflict broke out in 2011, and was left scrambling to find a country that would issue him a visa so he would not have to return to Syria.

Cooper said she didn't have many details about how officials at Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada came to secure his release, other than staff from the Canadian High Commission in Singapore had been involved.

It's stunning to know the U.A.E has no compassion for Syrian refugees, for one since he lived there why not keep him among his own? And - since also they use the same mentality among Muslim brothers?!

ANOTHER OMAR KHADR PRIORITY?

Omar Khadr from attending a celebration near Parliament Hill in late June where PM Justin Trudeau was the keynote speaker, even though Mr. Khadr was not on the guest list for the invitation-only event.

Two sources have confirmed to The Globe and Mail that Mr. Khadr and his wife, Muna Abougoush, were in the Parliament Buildings on June 19, the same day as an annual celebration of the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr in the Sir John A. Macdonald building, a parliamentary reception hall.

The annual event includes members of the public, and MPs and senators from all parties.

We can only wish that he might be another ethically cool guy as Raheem Kassam...
