Yep any winnings in Canada in lottery or gameshows/sweepstakes/contests ect are taxfree.

Sure the prize money is much less than US....but really 500,000 in US = 300,000 after taxes.

Canada's = 100,000 cash + 25,000 GC + 20,000 vehicle = 145,000 approx.

In reality US BB is only about 150,000 more...and considering it is backed by CBS, while BBCA is backed by Slice (think FX or Showtime in the US), thats not bad.
