The Bay of Fundy Needs Us!
As you may or may not know, there is a global competition going on right now to identify the New 7 Wonders of Nature! Canada's only finalist in the competition is The Bay of Fundy, known for having the highest tidal range in the world. Located between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, the Bay of Fundy is competing against 27 other finalists including heavyweights like the Grand Canyon, Kilimanjaro and the Great Barrier Reef - all hoping to become one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature! The worldwide competition will be determined by popular vote, with the final 7 being announced on November 11, 2011. So, here's a great chance to unite as a country and give our colleagues in the Bay of Fundy region a boost by getting the word out and voting in the campaign. And of course, when we win, many of us will benefit from future tourists coming to our great nation and visiting many of our other great treasures. Information about the initiative can be found at the New 7 Wonders of Nature website. With just 17 days left, we need to make this happen for Canada and the Bay of Fundy. You can help by voting here yourself and then spreading the word to your contacts to vote as well. Emails to all municipal employees, Facebook links, Twitter mentions to your followers -- all this help is needed as well! Atlantic Canadians are known for their great hospitality! Let's give a little back to them and show what Canada's cities and communities are capable of by helping make the Bay of Fundy one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature! Sincerely,
Councillor Berry Vrbanovic President, Federation of Canadian Municipalities
