I was part of a group that welcomed our newest Gabriolan family, the Merbeds, to the island as they drove off the ferry. I think it was one of my proudest moments as a Canadian. Yesterday they were in Lebanon, today they arrived on the other side of the world. It will be a huge culture shock, I am sure, but I know Gabriolans will do their best to help them feel welcome and get settled in.
