Strange report in Dutch newspapers and sites (https://www.lindanieuws.nl/snacks/raar-aan-canadese-kust-spoelen-voeten-aan/Raar: aan Canadese kust spoelen voeten aan), my translation below.

Stu, ever been on vacation to British Columbian beaches? Must be paradise for you.

The Canadian province of British Columbia is known by tourists for its beauriful coasts. Authorities have a feet problem though.

In recent years at least twelve human feet have washed up at the Pacific coast. Coroners have been able to identify a few of them. The only thing known about the others is that they are from males.

The foot-phenomenon started in 2007, and since then the currents deposit a foot ashore regularly. Canadian media speculate widely about their origin: tsunami debris, murdered drug dealers, serial killers, etc. The answer will probably not be found soon.

Here's an English source: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articl...g-up-on-shore-in-british-columbia-canada.html

And even a wikipedia page! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salish_Sea_human_foot_discoveries

Yeah, this was big news in Canada back when it first started. It no longer makes the newspapers.
