Last Updated: Saturday, August 7, 2010 | 12:58 PM PT Comments32Recommend142.CBC News
A farmhouse overlooks the Lillooet River, muddied by a landslide in the Meager Creek area north of Pemberton, B.C., on Friday. (Darryl Dyck/Canadian Press) Hundreds of people forced from their residences in the Meager Creek area, near Pemberton, B.C., have begun returning home following the lifting of an evacuation order.

The order was lifted at 10:45 a.m. PT Saturday, as fears of a massive flood lessened.

About 1,500 people were told to leave late Friday night following a landslide that blocked Meager Creek.

But the water that had backed up in Meager Creek was able to find a new channel to escape.

"Any significant threat of flooding has passed," said Leslie Lloyd, information officer for the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District's emergency operations centre.

The evacuation order was issued for residents in the Lillooet River valley over fears that a lake that formed behind the blocked Meager Creek might give way.

Area remains unstable
Whistler RCMP Sgt. Shawn Lemay told CBC News that the area remains unstable.

"It's not 100 per cent safe," he said.

The two-kilometre-wide landslide also partially blocked the Lillooet River. Officials say water levels in that river peaked at 3 a.m. PT Saturday at 1.5 metres. But in subsequent hours, the level fell.

On Friday, search and rescue teams found several campers known to be in the Pemberton Valley area.

Thirteen campers, who were trapped by Friday morning's slide in the Meager Creek Hot Springs area, were safely taken out by helicopter.

The Meager Creek area has been the scene of several large landslides in recent years. A 1998 slide sent more than a million cubic metres of rock and debris down Mount Meager, blocking a creek and creating a lake 800 metres wide.

Can you homestead a piece of land in Canada?In: Canada [Edit categories] 

[Improve] 
you cannot homestead Crown land in Canada, since the dominion lands act is no longer law. you can obtain crown land at market rates by purchasing it from the government, but it is not an easy process. there is some very cheap land in some counties that can be purchased for next to nothing with conditions that you must build a home or be a permanent resident. there is other land that is simply very affordable, with no restrictions.

there is a lot of land in canada, and consequently, some of the more remote land is very cheap. You can purchase land at prices that might as well be homesteaded, but you can not get land for free anymore, on the promise of improving it. Note: There are comments associated with this question. See the discussion page to add to the conversation.

Great balls of fire over Canada: NASA investigates

MONTREAL - Great balls of fire were reported swooping recently over Eastern Canada and several U.S. states and there are different theories about what caused the sightings.

Even NASA's on the case.

An agency spacecraft got a closer look at one of the possible sources when it made a scheduled flight past the Hartley 2 comet on Thursday.

It took closeup pictures of the comet, which is roughly 1.2 kilometres wide and spews deadly cyanide gas.

The comet made one of its closest passes by Earth this week, flying by at a still-reassuring distance of 18 million kilometres from our planet.

Scientist Peter Brown says that, last month, his meteor group at the University of Western Ontario tracked one of two fireballs while the other was detected by NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office.

"Those two fireballs, which were seen by two separate networks, were fairly similar," he told The Canadian Press.

"The position where they came from the sky, however, was a bit different and their orbit was only in a vague sense similar to Hartley 2."

Hartley 2 is very bright, so the peanut-shaped comet can be seen faintly with the naked eye.

Brown says earthlings needn't worry about the cyanide gas it emits.

"Even if the Earth was to go right through that (gassy) tail, there would be absolutely no effect," the physics professor said.

But there would be "very deleterious effects" if what's described as a small comet were to collide with the planet.

Brown and his meteor group at the University of Western Ontario had a very tiny taste of such a risk just over a year ago.

The university's network of cameras tracked a meteorite that fell near Grimsby, Ont., and cracked the windshield of an SUV.

Luckily, the vehicle was parked at the time.

The university's automated systems detect at least one bright fireball every month.

The ones last month generated particular attention, given the relative proximity of Hartley 2 to the planet.

NASA's unmanned, car-sized spacecraft — called Deep Impact — flew past the comet on Thursday morning.

The vehicle is described as one of the U.S. space agency's most successful deep-space exploration projects, with hopes it could help reveal new insights into the origins of our solar system.

The vehicle got within 700 kilometres of Hartley 2.

The comet, which was discovered in 1986 by British-born astronomer Malcolm Hartley, is actually small when compared with the famous Halley's comet that comes around every 76 years.

"(Halley's) 15 kilometres in size — or 10 times the size of Hartley 2," Brown said.

So what caused those mysterious fireballs that were sighted in mid-October?

Brown thinks they were part of the Taurids meteor shower, coming from a comet called Encke.

"That shower produces very bright meteors so we're seeing fireballs almost every night from this shower," he said.

The Taurids meteor shower — which are also known as the "Halloween fireballs" — typically peak around the end of October.
