I've always wanted to visit Niagara Falls. Do you agree with the list??? ;o)

Did this correspond to the answers you received and of course, as belinda already asked, to your own list?

All beautiful things, but shouldn't the West Coast be better represented?

The criteria used by the judges to decide on the seven final winners were:
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.
6. Results of the online vote by Canadians.

I was surprised to see "Wonders' chosen that are NOT specific places, such as The Canoe and The Igloo, but both have had a profound influence on the country of Canada. But Prairie skies??? Hmmm, not sure about that one. Rockies and Niagara Falls are definite YESs, the same with Pier 21 and Old Quebec.
But I would have liked to see Gros Morne on the list.

Well i think they are all wonderful, The Niagra Falls is just breath taking, somewhere i had a photo of Niagra Falls with it being frozen over, now that is spectacular to see.
