Make Wreck beach in Vancouver one of the 7 Wonders of Canada

Update: This request is now the subject of a NAC Alert dated May 23, 2007. Voting ends Friday so it is important you cast your vote to put a naturist location in the top seven. Currently, Wrech Beach, though still a part of the short list, is only garnering 1% of the vote, or just over 4,000 votes. Rick

Dear Wreck Beach Friends:

Please re-distribute the e-mail below to all your list serves, e-mail lists, naturist friends, and acquaintances. Just having Wreck Beach on the short list of 52 CBC Wonders of Canada nominees is a tribute to naturist solidarity everywhere. Bless you all for helping protect this precious beach by voting to have it recognized as one of Canada’s seven wonders. Through such recognition, comes protection, so we urge you to please vote! We are thrilled to have made the “short list” from 1800 nominations. We have been on CBC radio with the two other beaches
running, and appeared in a prominently-featured article in 24-Hours Newspaper yesterday, and will be featured in a cross-Canada news story to promote the Seven Wonders of Canada CBC Contest Tuesday, May 22, on CBC National Television News…at 6:00 p.m. and later!

Recently the CBC Radio and Television launched a contest to find the Seven Wonders of Canada. They are searching for places which fulfill the following criteria:

1. Essential 'Canadian-ness' - historically significant, character filled, valued
2. Originality/uniqueness of the pitch and place
3. Spectacular physical site or amazing human creation
4. Ability to inspire
5. Range within the final seven - diversity of location, type of wonder

Thanks to your many passionate submissions, Wreck Beach is on the list of 52 nominees! 1800 nominations were received so we are already a winner, but what the heck? We thought we’d also try for the Seven Wonders list too!

Please vote right now to help establish Wreck Beach as an officially-recognized wonder of Canada.(You can vote for up to seven nominees but a single vote for Wreck Beach will help us most.) We are easy to find on the alphabetized list, third from the end:


Many thanks for your support!
