The Bay of Fundy is the only Canadian finalist in the New 7Wonders of Nature campaign and the premiers of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick are doing all they can to encourage Canadians to participate and vote. Premier Darrell Dexter and Premier David Alward are ramping up efforts to get people excited about the contest with a new marketing strategy, in partnership with Bay of Fundy Tourism. “David and I are excited to lend our support to this exciting project,” said Premier Dexter. “I look forward to educating Canadians, and the world, about why the Bay of Fundy is a top natural wonder, why they should vote, why they should visit the area and, most importantly, why the Bay of Fundy should win this campaign.” “I am happy to champion the Bay of Fundy in my home province of New Brunswick but also at the national and international level,” said Premier Alward. “The Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world and the beauty of the region is incomparable. Our Bay of Fundy is indeed deserving of designation as one of the New7Wonders of Nature.” Marketing plans in the revamped campaign include a national ‘Vote My Fundy’ day, a high-profile social media campaign and introducing text voting. The premiers also announced that they will use every opportunity at next month’s Canada Winter Games in Halifax to motivate Canadians to vote for the Bay of Fundy. “I will be meeting many people from across the country during the Canada Games and I plan to ask them to support Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to ensure that the Bay of Fundy gets formally recognized as a natural wonder,” said Premier Dexter. The Bay of Fundy is Canada’s only finalist among 28 candidates in the international campaign. All Canadians can “ride the tide” and support the Bay of Fundy’s bid to be one of the official New7Wonders of Nature by going to votemyfundy.com and casting a vote. The official New7Wonders of Nature will be announced Nov. 11.
Un déversement de mazout domestique pourrait avoir une incidence sur la qualité de l’eau du lac Fletcher, à Fall River. On demande aux personnes qui tirent l’eau de ce lac d’éviter de l’utiliser si elles constatent un lustre huileux et une odeur distincte. L’ébullition de l’eau ne la rendra pas sécuritaire à la consommation. L’eau de surface ne doit jamais être consommée à moins d’être filtrée et désinfectée de façon appropriée et que la qualité de l’eau soit vérifiée. Les gens qui utilisent une source d’eau municipale peuvent continuer de consommer leur eau. -30-
