What do you hope to gain from your CBC interview and air time? The Canadian media is reporting it as a story about you and not your sister. More women go missing in Canada than in Syria and they never get all that air time. I can understand spreading the news in Syria (in case someone saw her) but I doubt that CBC viewers can help this way.
Anyway good luck. Your sister is in my prayer and I hope they will find her safe soon.

Re: CBC interview
EVERY bit helps. You never know where a lead will come from.
And if the next step is to pull together a reward, the additional exposure may help there.
But most importantly, Canadians are caring people, and we care about a story like this. I'd be more upset if the CBC didn't do a piece.

Re: CBC interview
You would be surprised at how often the 6 degrees of separation can work in ones favour. I myself live in Canada and when I heard about Nicole going missing, although I only knew her indirectly, I was able to contact many people I knew that could help, even though I myself could not go and hunt her down.
Wouldn't you ask ANYONE to help?? You never know who might be "secretly Syrian".
More people will be able to identify with Matt's dilemma of losing a sister, rather than actually being lost. Not many people are as adventurous as Nicole. People will help if they can feel the pain... whatever Nicole is going through is something we cannot fathom, but I can fathom what Matt is going through and I am faced with myself when I do. If it was my brother lost, I would want all the help I can get.
Stop looking for assholes in heroes. It is unnerving.
