Wednesday afternoon, four Engineering students, Steven Toniollo, Yassin Strinic, Ross Willett and Corey Bastarache, braved what has been called "slush-meggedon" to take a leisurely canoe ride – in the middle of campus.

Bastarache, a second-year Mechatronics and Society student, portaged his aunt's canoe through Westdale to drop it into the pond on the BSB lawn. Students have jokingly referred to this flood plain as Lake McMaster.

These students canoed around the lake, eventually offering passers by ferry rides across to get to their classes. The oversized puddle blocks most of a walkway leading to BSB and JHE.

Bastarache described floating around campus as a "great way to relax."
