A man was riding his ATV along the beach in British Columbia when he spotted part of a moving container -- and what some believe is the first bit of tsunami debris to wash up in Canada. Upon closer inspection, he discovered a motorcycle inside...with a Japanese license plate. Some believe the container is part of the debris scattered worldwide by last year's tsunami in Japan. Peter Mark spoke about his discovery via skype. SOUNDBITE: Peter Mark, man who found the motorcycle saying: "Lo and behold you just come across something that's out of this world." It turns out the rusty Harley Davidson -- that washed up on British Columbia's Graham island -- was registered to Miyagi Prefecture, one Japan's harder hit communities. Deborah Gembara, Reuters.
