Gabriola, British Columbia: The best place on Earth to Live

Music Matters > Island To Island
I know pride is a sin but today, I'm feeling darn proud to be a Gabriolan. Over the weekend, in a matter of 36 hours or so, our community came together and organized a benefit concert for Haiti. And despite the short time frame, it's no slip-shod affair. The acts are lined up, there's already a poster, the tickets are printed and on sale, the hall is booked, the sound team is good to go, donations for a silent auction are overflowing my neighbour's living room and a website was even launched so that online donations may be made. And the Canadian government will match whatever we raise so that's a bonus.
In the face of unthinkable tragedy, it's good to see some light.
