<P>I think that this request takes a lot of guts to make.&nbsp; Can the Canadian Govt explain what incentive ANYONE has helping them.&nbsp; IF, I lived in Canada and I had ANY information, the Canadian Govt would be the last to know.<BR><BR>Instead, I would urge all Canadians to contact American dealers on ALL meteorite finds.&nbsp; Hell, they would even&nbsp;be better off claiming that Canadian finds came from Morocco so they could at least cash in a little bit.&nbsp; Or they could claim that the meteorite was found in Montana.&nbsp; Who would be the wiser?</P>

<DIV></DIV>&gt;Scientists seeking help in search for meteor
<DIV></DIV>&gt;November 7, 2001
<DIV></DIV>&gt;CALGARY -- Researchers are hoping someone has a
<DIV></DIV>&gt;photograph or video of the biggest meteor to fall in Alberta
<DIV></DIV>&gt;in 40 years so they can tell where it landed.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Alan Hildebrand, a planetary scientist at the University of
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Calgary, says the meteor was an asteroidal fragment that
<DIV></DIV>&gt;weighed five to 10 tonnes, about 1.5 meters in diameter.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Hildebrand says it was travelling at roughly 20 kilometres
<DIV></DIV>&gt;per second and this was probably the biggest rock to fall on
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Alberta since 1960.''
<DIV></DIV>&gt;The flaming rock was seen streaking north across the
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Alberta sky near the British Columbia boundary on October
<DIV></DIV>&gt;14th at around 2:20 a.m.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;It exploded over the northern part of Banff National Park
<DIV></DIV>&gt;with a deafening boom that could be heard 150 kilometers
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Eyewitnesses reported seeing hundreds of pieces of the
<DIV></DIV>&gt;rock falling to the ground, however, freshly fallen snow
<DIV></DIV>&gt;may delay the hunt for particles until next spring.
