McGill University's Engineering Program Reputation?

Does anyone have an idea as to McGill's Engineering program's reputation? From what I've read in (really outdated...like 2007-ish) forums about this topic is that McGill's engineering is less than stellar.

I'm really into McGill because I know I would love the experience of being in a french-speaking city, not to mention how it's ranked on Playboy's top party schools list. I really want to go to McGill, but I also want to get an Engineering degree.

How does McGill Engineering compare to say, Waterloo's or University of Toronto's? Does anyone know? I want to apply to medical school after I get my Engineering bachelors and t would probably be smart to go to a school where getting a high GPA isn't impossible (not UT). Is McGill Engineering easy, marks-wise?

McGill has a great engineering program. I wouldn't think it would be easy though

I don't think any engineering program would be easy? If you honestly have little to no intention of actually working in anything besides medicine, why not go into something somewhat "easier"? It's possible to get a high GPA in engineering though (ktel did :D) so I suppose it's not out of the question, just seems unnecessary if medicine is your only goal.
