OTTAWA, ON -April 30, 2010- Today Greg Kerr, Member of Parliament for West Nova, made a statement in the House of Commons urging all Canadians to support the Bay of Fundy in the New7Wonders of Nature campaign.

“Mr. Speaker,

As most of us are now aware, the Bay of Fundy, which is located between two of our provinces, has been named as a finalist in the running for one the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

The New Seven Wonders of Nature campaign started with over 440 entries representing over 220 countries. Today, the Bay of Fundy is one of the 28 entries remaining and the only entry left representing Canada.

I am very pleased that our government is supporting this wonderful initiative and has committed federal funding towards the Bay’s campaign.

This is an exciting time for all residents in the surrounding area. Terri McCulloch of Bay of Fundy Tourism has worked hard on this endeavour and often repeats that we must take maximum advantage of the world wide exposure and tourism potential this contest provides.

I am asking all Members of the House to support this initiative and to encourage their constituents to vote for the Bay of Fundy. The contest continues through this year and the winner will be announced in 2011.

Please take the time to vote online at:

A vote for the Bay is a vote for Canada.”
