Prince Rupert was the hottest city in Canada on Feb. 27, according to Environment Canada’s website.
The site reported that Prince Rupert held the top spot for temperature, recording 11.4 degrees Celsius as the high.
Rowse went water skiing in a wet suit, dry top, farmer john, life jacket and wool socks.
He said he felt bad for never having used water skis that a friend had given him last summer. He did a 15-minute ride, up and down the harbour three times to make amends.
“You know what, it was really nice. I just had wool socks on my feet and I was surprisingly warm, and I never fell in so that was even better,” said Rowse.
“I’ll probably go next week too.”
The coldest temperature in Canada on Feb. 27 was recorded in Eureka, Nunavut at -42.9 degrees Celsius.
