The Canadian Hurricane Centre have just issued their first update about this storm, playing it safe about where it will track, lots of time yet before the track is nailed down:

Great name for a storm lol! First time it's ever been used I believe after one of the previous "G's" was retired.

So the first named storm of the season has formed and looks like making a bee line into the region probably intensifying into a hurricane as it moves up the coast towards NS, before turning sub tropical as it moves on through the region. Latest model runs from the GGEM and GFS seem to favour it cutting NW once past NS so I think less of a concern for us in Eastern NL as will be fairly weak by then also.
Latest predictions from the NHC:

This system has caught my eye over the past few days it seems winter wont quite hand over the reigns completely yet, early days to know where exactly it will track and who will see what but appears to enough cold air in place for a significant shot of snow just in time for Easter! A prolonged amount of freezing rain for some also appears to be a risk as well on the latest GFS. After some warmth this week and the melting of just about all the snow I think more snow on Easter weekend will be the final straw for many, how ever short lived any snow will be.

Noticed EC rolled out a few changes to their alerting system yesterday, not really any major changes other than changing some "warnings" to "advisories", though see they have rolled out new Fog advisory...that will be used a lot here! Not sure you need to be alerted to Fog though it's not really anything that presents any imminent danger such as heavy snow or high winds etc

All the models seem pretty consistent past day or so in modelling a major coastal storm next week, exact track to be decided may end up a miss though that looks unlikely, may move further West, certainly looks worth tracking for Eastern Canada and didn't want to clutter up and confuse other threads.
