Text Voting for Bay of Fundy announced at national press conference!

We're thrilled to be hosting the Canada Games in our region this week and next. The Games take place every 4 years and are the country's biggest winter sporting event. With so many Canadians attending and watching on TV, it's also a great chance to share the Bay of Fundy's quest as the only Canadian site in the New7Wonders of Nature campaign.

Our first VoteFundy event took place at the Opening Ceremonies on February 11 (see pix of me and the Premiers of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia!).

Then today I was thrilled to be joined by our two Tourism Ministers and a couple of young hockey players to announce that text voting for Bay of Fundy in the campaign has been set up for all Canadian mobile devices: simply text the word FUNDY in English (BAIE in French) to the phone number 77077. Each text vote costs you $0.25 and you can text votes as many times as you like. We used the backs of our hockey jerseys to remind folks attending the press conference about the text voting number: 77077!
