first_imgCelebrities from across the country are having fun and getting a little muddy in a video to let Canadians know they need to vote to make the Bay of Fundy one of the official New7Wonders of Nature on Nov. 11. The video opens with Premier Darrell Dexter and New Brunswick Premier David Alward, representing both sides of the bay. They are joined by well-known Canadians including Jann Arden, Joel Plaskett, Measha Brueggergosman, Rick Mercer, the anchors of Canada AM, and Maestro Fresh Wes. “Many Nova Scotians have taken in the amazing experiences offered on our spectacular bay,” said Economic and Rural Development and Tourism Minister Percy Paris. “This video will help Canadians realize its awesome power and beauty. We are letting people know that time is running out. The Bay of Fundy is Canada’s finalist and people must vote as often as they can before November 11 to make it one of the official New7Wonders of Nature.” Opera singer Measha Brueggergosman grew up near the Bay of Fundy, and is determined to reach out to Canadians to convince them they must vote. “As Canadians, we understand how amazingly beautiful our country is and it’s time we shouted it far and wide,” said Ms. Brueggergosman. “The reality is the Bay of Fundy is the very definition of a natural wonder. It boasts the highest tides on the planet, has incredible marine biodiversity and spectacular rock formations completely unique to the area. Not to mention it’s home to 12 species of whale. “The Bay of Fundy deserves to be officially recognized as one of the world great natural wonders and we’ve got to vote to make it happen. I can’t encourage Canadians strongly enough to text or vote online, tweet it, Facebook it, and tell all their friends and family to do the same!” More celebrity videos will also be posted featuring David Myles, the cast of This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Jean-François Breau, Scott McGillivray, K.C. Collins, and Mary Jane Lamond with fiddler Wendy MacIsaac. The videos can be viewed online at www.votemyfundy.com.
