Quick search showed up nothing in the results, I find that strange myself.. this contest has been HAX! :P

Also I think I know why Quebec gets excluded most of the time: Section 5, (10) the following text: “Any litigation respecting the conduct or organization of a publicity contest may be submitted to the Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux for a ruling. Any litigation respecting the awarding of a prize may be submitted to the board only for the purpose of helping the parties reach a settlement”;

Me thinks most people don't want to have a hazzle submitting a contest to the Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux.

This is actually one of the few contests that hasn't been won by a usual member.

If a sponsor wants the contest opened up to a broader audience, I see no issue with that.

I was under the impression that contests are only open to HWC members.

The data is complex, different circumstances different treatment should be done.

That's an interesting reply... 5$ says it's a bot. I've checked his posts (2 of them) both of his replies doesn't make any sense.
