With Open Arms

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.


  1. This is so wonderful, Heather. I'll be hoping all the best for the family. It's obvious that Gabriola is a very special place to live.

    I hope the Merbeds settle into Canadian life well. I'm sure they'll lots of help from Gabriolaners. Jean-Pierre
