Calgary woman comes home with her Syrian husband

The Go Public team heard today from Anya Sass, a Calgary woman, and her Syrian husband, Habib Alibrahim, who were living in a dangerous suburb on the outskirts of Damascus.  They had to wait 24 months to process his sponsorship papers to come to Canada as her spouse.  They went public when their pleas to the government to expedite their application due to the escalating danger in that country fell on deaf ears.

Just two months after our story aired in September, Alibrahim was granted permanent residency.  They arrived on the weekend, just in time for the holidays:

"Just wanted to send you an update that we have arrived in Canada!  We landed in Calgary last Saturday.  We're still adjusting, but so far so good.  Thanks again to you both for all your help!"
