the seven wonders of canada

I think Canada is a wonderful country.
I have visited 9 out of 10 provinces [Newfoundland & Labrador being the exception] as well as the North West Territories. It's truly a beautiful and diverse country.
To celebrate our land CBC is searching for The Seven Wonders of Canada. Here is the short-list of the 52 nominees. I've marked with a "Y" the ones I have seen. Check out the The Seven Wonders of Canada site for more info on each wonder.
