Deer Island Love Story
Averosa Esperagoza-Leslie never expected to marry a Canadian.
But then she never expected to wind up in Deer Island, New Brunswick either.
Averosa is one of dozens of Filipino immigrants who've come to work at the lobster processing plant on Deer Island, in the Bay of Fundy.
As the population of the Island has declined, the plant has had trouble finding local workers.
Now it's thriving, and the community - including Averosa's husband Grant - has welcomed its new residents.
The CBC's Matthew Bingley spent time on Deer Island this past fall.
