Australia detained him, but these Australians are trying to set him free

For more than ten years hundreds of people seeking asylum in Australia have been detained on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea and Nauru.
The Australian government has made it clear that none of them will be resettled here.
But now a group of refugee advocates have a new plan to help them - involving a third country: Canada.
Today, one of those advocates, assistant professor Dr Laura Beth Bugg, on the campaign to free refugees from Manus Island and find them a permanent home.   
 
Guest: Assistant professor and co-director of Ads Up Canada, Dr Laura Beth Bugg.
