Queen's Grease Pole Liberation (2015)
In 2015, a group of University of Toronto Engineering students liberated the Queen’s Grease Pole for the second time in history. The liberation occurred shortly after the Sci ’19 Class successfully climbed it.
Two months after the liberation, a list of ransom demands was sent to the Queen’s Engineering Society: upon successful fulfilment of these demands, the Pole would be returned. Unfortunately, Queen’s Engineering students failed to fulfil the demands listed. As a result, the list of demands was opened up to several engineering schools across Canada.
McMaster University Engineering students responded first with all of the demands met, and retrieved the Pole from the University of Toronto before the summer of 1T6. The Pole was eventually returned to Queens’ University, in time for the Queen’s ’20 Class to climb it once more.
