    it's pretty dumb, but it's Canadian law.

    Sweepstakes/contests must be a game of skill or something or other.

    For most contests, the work around is to present a math problem to the winner. if the "winner" cannot answer the question, then oh well they can't receive their prize.

    You'd think it's easy even with a calculator. sometimes it's ridiculously hard, or just unreasonably easy.

    it may be funny. But almost people in Quebec can't even win a prize. All contests here always exclude Quebec.

    "Quebecois residents, if selected as a winner, must demonstrate the ability to speak Parisian French in order to win a prize."

    I'm just grateful that if I ever did win a million bucks, I'd get to keep it all and not have the government take their share. Taxing Winnings is FTL
