“Japanese tsunami: what debris is washing up in Canada now?”

“The earthquake and tsunami near a city of Sendai in Japan happened over two years ago.
Around 1.5 million tonnes of debris washed into the ocean by the disasters are expected to reach North American shores.
The odd items – a football and even a Harley Davidson bike – have already arrived.
Brandy Yanchyk went to Flores Island in British Colombia to find out what locals are finding on the west coast of Canada.”
