Oak Island--Now For Sale

DQ reader Matt Haney let me know that Oak Island is for sale:
Oak Island, rumoured for two centuries as the home of hidden treasure, is being offered for sale to the Nova Scotia provincial government for $7 million.

That's seven million Canadian, in case you're wondering. Here's more:
[Owners] Dan Blankenship, 82, and David Tobias, 81, have agreed to shut down their business, Oak Island Tours Inc...200 years of searching has failed to yield any treasure. Blankenship and Tobias have spent almost 40 years in their search.

Forty years!

Here's also a link to a short video about the island:
