Think outside the box…and win a SportCombi (if you’re smart enough)


If you happen to live in Ontario (hello Brian), you could win a year’s lease on a 9-3 SportCombi. All you have to do (apparently) is complete the entry form at Saab Canada’s site, telling them what you think would have the best effect in making Toronto a better city.

Residents of Western Canada: be nice!!

I said ‘apparently’ earlier for good reason. The front page of that weblink says that all you have to do is complete the form. But if you go to the Rules & Regulations, you find this at Item 5(b):

General Conditions
5. To be declared a winner and claim a prize, the entrant selected for the Prize must………b) Correctly answer a time-limited, mathematical skill-testing question that will be administered over the telephone at a mutually convenient time, without help of any nature.

I’ll be asking this of Saab Canada – Which is it? Simply fill in the form OR fill in the form and complete a time-limited mathematical skills test not mentioned anywhere else on the site. Can people with fantastic literacy skills but poor numeracy skills win this competition?

More on this later…..

  1. Steven, my wife (who’s originally from BC) hinted at the same thing when I told her about this last night. It seems that in Canada they can’t have a competition and just give something away, it has to be be a reward-for-achievement type thing (a condition which I’m sure is taken very seriously).

    If so, consider me dismounted from my innumerate high-horse!!
