This is an amazing story...
Update: The camera owner has been identified - email received from Firefit Canada:

"Hello Mark,
Thank you so much for the email.
Yes I know exactly who the camera belongs to!
He is a Delta Fire Fighter.
I will have him contact you.
Kind Regards,
Hilary."

Thank you to everyone who responded with ideas (some listed below) - proof that the google+ hive-mind can be utilized to complete a simple gesture like returning someones photos :) Did I mention that I love Google+?

Pics are posted in the album from the SD card (photos aren't mine, so the child remains anonymous).
exif data has been looked at.
Kamloops Fire Rescue and Firefit have been contacted.
Canon Canada has be contacted re: camera serial number (reply received - no record of the serial number).
The photos have been dropped into google search and specific websites mentioned in the comments (no luck yet).
camera serial - canon eos rebel xs: 0520213746
SD card (for those who inquired): Sandisk Extreme III 20mb/s 2GB (it's not uncommon for SD cards to survive underwater - regardless of brand).

an interesting comparison: I posted this on facebook early this morning to try my luck there - it received one 'like' - that's it (there's a reason I left).

Original Post:

For Sale: Canon EOS 1000D
Description: only used underwater once, in the Pacific Ocean, for approximately one year.

Actual story: found off the end of a wharf in Deep Bay, BC while I was diving on a job for the harbour. I removed the SD card, cleaned it up, stuck it in a card reader and after being underwater in a corroding camera since August 2010 - it works! Approximately 50 pictures on the card from a family vacation. If you know a fire fighter from British Columbia whose team won the Pacific Regional Firefit competition, has a lovely wife and (now) 2 year old daughter - let me know. I would love to get them their vacation photos :)

There are other clues on within the pictures - I think we should be able to track them down (not sure he'll want the camera back tho).
