now this is for the people voting to win tickets to the game itself. can anyone answer me, why do Canadian's need to take a math test if they win?
It's a law - you can't just give stuff away in Canada. I have no idea why it's a law, but it applies to pretty much any corporate contest. For a while way back when, even McDonalds required you to do that if you won a free drink in the Monopoly contest.
