Many sweepstakes are void in Quebec because the sponsors must follow a stringent set of rules set out by the Quebec government. For example, in order for sponsor to skip the "void in Quebec" restriction, Quebec sweepstakes law requires that the sponsors must do some or all of the following things:
  • Register the sweepstakes rules and all advertisements used to promote the contest with the Quebec government at least 30 days ahead of the sweepstake's launch.
  • Pay a fee of 10% of the sweepstake's value.
  • Agree to allow the government of Quebec to mediate any lawsuits arising from the contest.
  • Follow strict guidelines about the contents of the sweepstakes rules.
  • Allow the Quebec government to determine if the sweepstake may be changed or canceled once it has started.
  • File a written report after the contest has concluded, attesting that the prizes have been delivered or attempted to be delivered.
  • Agree to follow a number of other rules and guidelines. See the Quebec Sweepstakes Laws.
While these laws are intended to protect the citizens of Quebec, they are also a significant burden of money and resources to sweepstakes sponsors, and the consequences for a mistake are severe. Rather than run the risk of facing legal action if these long and complicated rules are not followed to the letter, many sponsors take the easy route of making their contests void in Quebec

You aren't supposed to look for a diamond doggy, it's a Chipette ad on the side...in the advertisements. You click on the ad and fill out the form that pops up.
Thanks for explaining this to us FroggyDoodle. I wondered why places were excluded and had felt bad that they were...now I realize the people chose to make those laws for their own governments and should change the laws if they don't like them. This was very interesting.

Well I for one have learned something here tonight. I had no idea other countries were being excluded so frequently. While I applaud your patience and tolerance, I also wish it had been made public sooner so we could have helped.

This WI community is like a virtual family, and if one of us are experiencing problems with WW, the rest of us are here to help out. But if we don't know, there is no way we can help. I'd ask in the future that if this happens again, please let it be known to the community right away.

I know for certain that many generous people here would bend over backwards to share the wealth. On that note, if there is/was an item that those of you were excluded from, please let me know and if I have them I will be more than happy to share.

Hope you all have a blessed Easter Weekend.

Mulberry, just so you know, this has been common knowledge, but I think because it has been such an ongoing issue, it's just tolerated. In no way was this a secret....but just know, your generosity and kindness are so thoughtful!

Wow I just logged in for a moment, and got bombarded. I live in Canada. But most of my family live in Michigan U.S. I really wish I could participate in the contest as well but I have no time unfortunately. (4 children, work full time, college for masters degree) I really have to say I do not understand why they chose this contest if they even thought this may tear apart Canadian and United States citizens. Honestly I am a little disappointed they would be doing this as well. I know almost all of my nieces and nephews who live over the border are going to be crying in the morning. I have never thought it was right or just to leave any nation out in contest. But the reality is Both United States and Canada have it good compared to other countries who are never allowed to participate. As for webkinznews, I think that was just poor planning and judgment and, I feel that the Ganz company is going to have a flurry of calls tomorrow. I am truly sorry for all those who cannot participate in this contest, and I hope you will be able to in the future. That would really be the right thing for webkinznews/ganz/webkinz to do. Try to have a good weekend regardless. Good night everyone.

To the person who responded under my post about the many languages spoken throughout Canada, I am well aware that in every country many different languages are spoken. However, I am pretty sure that Ganz listing all of their available languages, was for the benefit of persons in other countries where French and English is like the 15th or 20th or whatever language most commonly spoken. In short, Ganz advertises about being global and to me global means all countries no matter how large or small, how rich or poor or how many different languages may be spoken.

that's too bad they're limiting access to all players. Hopefully they'll get it fixed so we can all have a chance to play.

It also states in the rules that only the first 50,000 e-mails received will win a prize, so there were a limited number to begin with.
