Bay of Fundy, Canada’s last shot at Wonderhood
If you did not already know, a major international election campaign has been waged these past few years, a high stakes war of electoral attrition pitting 28 natural wonders of the world — and the countries where said wonders are located — in a vote to determine the New7Wonders of Nature.
It is a catchy label, and one that would presumably look awfully nice on tourist pamphlets, international travel brochures and websites promoting the Bay of Fundy, Canada’s lone surviving entry in a global popularity contest cooked up by the New7Wonders Foundation.
It is like “American Idol” or “So You Think You Can Dance, Canada,” only the 28 natural beauties shaking their hips include Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Great Barrier Reef, the Grand Canyon, the Dead Sea, the Cliffs of Moher and, well, the Bay of Fundy. (Photos: Len Wagg/Communications Nova Scotia)
