Although it isn't Canadian news (thank goodness), it still makes for a great Friday Chuckle.
Gainesville.com reported this week...
"A pair of fugitives tried to escape capture Monday by paddling away on a canoe down the Withlacoochee River in Madison County. Their pursuers, however, had a power boat, and the paddlers soon were in custody.
Using two wooden paddles, the fugitives managed to elude authorities for about five hours before they were caught at the Southwest County Road 141 bridge after a 9-mile journey down the river."
