Queen's Grease Pole Liberation (2000)

In 2000, a group of University of Toronto engineering students liberated the Queen's Grease Pole shortly after the Sci '04 Class succeeded in climbing the pole. The pole was taken to the University of Toronto after being cut into two pieces for transport.

A list of demands was sent to the Queen's Engineering Society for the exchange of the pole. However, the demands were never met by the outraged Queen's engineers, and negotiations for its return were unsuccessful. Subsequently, the Grease Pole was put on public display in the Sandford Fleming Atrium for Godiva Week 0T1 before it was recovered by a group of Queen's engineering students.
