FILE - In this Thursday, Sept. 3, 2015 file photo, Tima Kurdi is overcome with emotion as she looks at photos of her late nephews Alan and Galib Kurdi, at her home in Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada. The body of 3-year-old Syrian, Alan, was found on a Turkish beach after the small rubber boat he, his 5-year old brother Galib and their mother, Rehan, were in capsized during a voyage from Turkey to Greece. The family said the spelling of the boys' names had been changed by Turkish authorities to "Aylan" and "Galip," but are actually spelled as "Alan" and "Galib." Canada has long prided itself for opening its doors wider than any nation to asylum seekers, but the number it welcomes has waned since the Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper took power almost 10 years ago.
