Randy Turgeon admitted he was “pretty anxious” last Friday (Sept. 7) as he prepared to go to pick up his son Christopher the next day after a flight from Mexico to Vancouver. After a 12-year effort of trying to contact, then visit his ex-wife and son — dealing with lawyers, immigration officials and the like — he could hardly believe it was about to happen. “I’m really apprehensive because until I actually see him get off the plane, I won’t believe it, and I’m trying not to get my hopes up,” said Turgeon, an ex-Squamish resident now living in Port Coquitlam.

She allowed him to return so she would not get arrested.  These abductors are selfless to the end:)


I wish this father all the best in what has to be a challenging reunification process after "12" years.


Still wonderful to see them together.  So happy for Randy and his son.

As a father whose child is abducted to mexico, I am wondering why it took 12 years to come up with this decision to let the son reunite with father?
