Sulemaan Ahmed's son Adam is nine years old, loves hockey and is constantly mistaken for a potential terrorist when he travels.
That's because his name is the same as a man on Canada's "no-fly list" of terror suspects.
"Traveling with kids is always fun to begin with," said Ahmed in an interview with CTV National News.
Even though Adam is just a child, when travelling, his family still needs to arrive extra early to the airport to provide buffer room for inevitable difficulties. Since they can't check in for flights online, the family is often separated on flights.
"The next thing you know your son is sitting five rows ahead with other strangers," said Ahmed.
