Not good.  Digital cameras and water are not good for each other.

 

There could any number of a host of things wrong.  I suggest that you contact Canon Support. If it is still under warranty, make no mention of the water.

 

It is probably a little late for this advice, but Canon makes an inexpensive waterproof camera, the Powershot D30.

They will know when they attempt to repair it.  More than likely it is toast.  You can try the warm heating pad trick.  Sit the Rebel on it for days, perhaps a week or so.  Do not try to turn it on.  If it hasn't been finished by already trying it. After a long time on the heating pad then try it.  Remember warm does not mean hot.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!
