I knew David Eaton when he was at Western. He became the head geo-ishy person when we were bulking up the Ontario seismic network. Suddenly he got an offer from Calgary that he couldn't refuse (a lot of money), since it takes a lot of money to want to go to that place! (I spent a summer there! :).
His mission was to shake up the sleepy place, which was too covered in oil, and he did it! There was also an article in Canadian Geographic on how they are installing the same type of seismometers we put in Ontario. Yeah, Calgary is rising from the third-rate, and David Eaton is doing it! No wonder whatshername wanted to talk there! :)
