Quebec excluded from contests?

I really wanted to know why contests are open to canadian members except Quebec?
In my head, that does'nt make any sense, because even if the first langage is French, almost everyone speaks English too.
If the reason is anything else, and if you know the answer to my question, please answer me.
I would really like to have a chance to win a contest while sharing my creations with the world.
Sincerely,

I'm Canadian, and pretty much all the contests that I've ever seen are excluding Quebec. As far as I know, there are different rules imposed on Quebec residents that make qualifying contests for your Province that much harder, and is perhaps why there is frequently the exclusion.
I think it's basically impossible to run a contest that is legal in Quebec unless you are based in Quebec.
Here's a good sampling of why contests don't run in Quebec.
That's what I thought... The Quebec politicians...

It's always the politicians and lawyers. I think it's great that Instructables have gone to more effort than most US companies who just go for the simplest "US only" option.
