A Canadair CRJ-705 was operating as Jazz flight JZA112 from Vancouver International Airport (CYVR), to San Jose International (KSJC). During the departure, a vibration in the left engine (as displayed on the engine indicating system) was noted. After an increase in vibration, the crew reduced thrust to idle on the left engine and initiated a return to CYVR. The reduction in thrust resulted in a reduced vibration. The crew did not declare an emergency, however, the airport initiated an emergency response. After landing and clearing the active runway, the crew stopped the aircraft on taxiway Mike due to damage on both left main landing gear tires. Passengers were taken to the arrival gate via ground transport and the aircraft was towed from the airport maneuvering area. Post-flight inspection revealed that the left-hand engine had ingested foreign object debris resulting in damage to the fan blades.
