The annual cleanup of McNabs Island in Halifax Harbour on Sunday yielded no shortage of unique items, from a fridge and stove, to deck chairs, doll heads, an aquarium and even a bowling ball.

The island, which is a provincial park and national historic site only accessible by boat, is a magnet for garbage because it's situated at the mouth of Halifax harbour, according to Cathy McCarthy, president of Friends of McNabs Island Society.

Hundreds of tiny tremors under Vancouver Island .
VICTORIA - Hundreds of tiny tremors, felt only by sensitive monitors, have shivered under southern Vancouver Island in the last 48 hours, leading one scientist to predict they may signal what he calls a "tectonic dance."
