After more than two years of evading the Taliban — and a dogged campaign led by retired Canadian military members urging the federal government to keep its promise — Afghan interpreter Mohammad Arif Yousafi is safe in Alberta.

“Finally we get into Canada. We arrived in Canada. So we are happy,” he said.

Yousafi, his wife and three children were brought to Medicine Hat earlier this month.

He fought long and hard to escape Afghanistan after working as an interpreter with the Canadian military in many parts of the country or six years.
